Student Scientists Demonstrate How Foam Keeps Beer From Sloshing Out of a Glass

An experiment conducted by students at the NYU Particles, Interface & Fluids Lab demonstrates how a good head of foam can keep beer from sloshing, more so than liquids that have little or no foam atop, like water or coffee. While the premise seems simple, the implications can affect how liquids are transported on a much larger scale. Besides, the experiment is really cool.

Sloshing, i.e. the oscillations of the free surface, is a practical and industrial challenge to liquid transportation. Walking with a beer teaches us that the presence of of foam atop a liquid can damp the sloshing. Our study provides new insights into the science of sloshing by exploring the damping effect of foam in a cells as illustrated in the picture.

The experiment was submitted for consideration at the 2014 Gallery of Fluid Motion of the APS-DFD conference which took place on November 23-25, 2014.

The Bottle Boys Perform a Cover of the Village People’s Hit Song ‘Y.M.C.A.’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

The five Denmark-based members of Bottle Boys (previously) recently showed off their shared set of skills while performing a cover of the Village People‘s 1978 hit song “Y.M.C.A.” using beer bottles as instruments.

We decided to shoot this video in our own studio, since it’s too cold outside here in Denmark and since we wanted it to have a more cosy look, without too much else going on in the frame. In that way you can really focus on what’s being played. We chose to play Y.M.C.A because it has some fast melodic parts and some really cool secondary melody lines.

The original song for the sake of comparison:

Florida Man Breaks a World Record by Opening 18 Beer Bottles With a Chainsaw in One Minute

Floridian John Nicholson scored his place in the Guinness Book of World Records (previously) by opening up 18 beer bottles with a chainsaw in the space of a minute. The sides of the bottle caps were carefully shaved on each bottle. Any that were chipped or knocked over in the process were disqualified from the final count. Those curious enough to try at home should check out a recent video on the subject by Slow Mo Lab.

The Bottle Boys Perform a Cover of Coldplay’s Song ‘Viva la Vida’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

The five Denmark-based members of Bottle Boys (previously) recently performed a cover of the song “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay using beer bottles as instruments.

For this video we chose ‘Viva la Vida’ by Coldplay, which is one of our favorite songs. The chords sound really nice on bottles, and we chose to loop the chords together with the kick drum (the water cooler tank) so that we could play together with this and honour the song by making it sounding a bit more epic than our usual videos.
