- ... An aqueous foam drains interstitial liquid as it fills a container after an induction period. We obtain solutions of quasi-steady and volume-averaged conservation equations containing the moving foam front to describe the induction period and the subsequent drainage, respectively. The quasi-steady theory predicts that the induction period increases with decreasing foam injection velocity. After th ...
