Water droplet erosion

This is a project in collaboration with Professor Robert J. Wood, as part of the PhD project of Mr Charlie Burson-Thomas. It consists of imaging the impact created by a water jet impinging on a solid material. The presentation below provides some interesting insight into this problem.
