Retraction of a liquid ligament in viscous and inertial regimes: research at IFPEN revisits theoretical predictions

Having concluded that the Taylor-Culick velocity was only valid to evaluate the characteristic retraction time for a liquid in an inertial regime, researchers at IFPEN have proposed a velocity that is valid in a viscous regime.
