One way in which the complex elastic, plastic and viscous properties of a liquid foam can be explored is through the interaction between the foam and an object moving relative to it. This variation on the classic 'Stokes' experiment is an important tool to investigate foam rheology. Here, we provide a summary of published experimental or simulation results and categorize them in various ways to highlight common themes and results, and unexplored areas of parameter space.
