The Acoustics of Liquid Foams

Abstract : Beside other transport properties of liquid foams, like the optical or electrical ones, the acoustics of liquid foams reveals a great complexity and non-trivial features. Here we present a review of recent experimental and theoretical results on how a sound wave interacts with either a macroscopic foam sample or with its isolated building blocks (films and Plateau borders). The analysis of the literature allows us to determine what is now well understood , what could be measured in foams by acoustics, and what are the remaining issues and perspectives in this research field.
