Abstract

The steady-state solutions of the viscous froth model for foam dynamics are analysed and shown to be of finite extent or to asymptote to straight lines. In the high-velocity limit, the solutions consist of straight lines with isolated points of infinite curvature. This analysis is helpful in the interpretation of observations of anomalous features of mobile two-dimensional foams in channels. Further physical effects need to be adduced in order to fully account for these.
