Sedimentation fronts in viscous suspensions

While the average velocity of a suspension of spheres sedimenting in a viscous fluid can be succesfully predicted theoretically, the problem of velocity fluctuations is still unsolved. In this talk, I will examine by laboratory experiments how the sedimentation front spreads and how this affects the velocity fluctuations
