The flow of a quasi-two-dimensional foam through a constriction is described. The bubble velocity and elongation (texture) is compared between two sets of experiments and two different quasi-static simulations using Surface Evolver and Potts Model. The simulations capture the effect of changing the degree of rounding of the corners of the flow geometry and the length of the constricted region. Validation of these simulation methods offers the possibility to explore parameter ranges that are inaccessible to experiments and to easily vary many parameters of interest.
