We review recent progress concerning an understanding of the rheological properties of foams, both in bulk form and confined in narrow channels, and including the problem of foam sliding along a solid wall. Our calculations contribute not only to the interpretation of rheological data, but also to the coupling of foam drainage and rheology.
