1st July marked the start of our new project ‘Frictional flow patterns shaped by viscous and capillary forces (FriicFlow)’, funded by EPSRC.
The project is a collaboration between the Complex Flow Lab, Prof. Chris MacMinn at University of Oxford and Prof. Eirik Flekkøy and Prof. Knut Jørgen Måløy at the Norwegian PoreLab Centre of Excellence.

Surely the biggest labyrinths the world has ever seen.
Thank you to Physics Central for covering our work.
Complex Flows, Simple Rules: how does a system of nothing more than mud and air mirror the fractal beauty of biological life? Find out:
