Stability of connected cylindrical liquid bridges

Academic Article


  • Two cylindrical liquid bridges, with a conduit to facilitate flow of liquid from one bridge to the other, were levitated against gravity in a magnetic field gradient. The stability limit of the bridges subjected to near zero total body force was measured as a function of their slenderness ratios, and found to be in good agreement with theoretical predictions. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
