[en] The motion of liquid into a foam under low-gravity conditions is studied both experimentally and theoretically. The foam is confined to two dimensions in a Hele-Shaw cell and the liquid fraction measured by image analysis. The foam imbibition is shown to be a diffusive process. Two models are analysed, corresponding to the limits of rigid and mobile interfaces in the Plateau borders. Liquid fraction profiles are compared to experimental ones. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V.
