Filament dynamics in confined chemical gardens and in filiform corrosion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two reaction systems that are at first sight very different produce similar macroscopic filamentary product trails. The systems are chemical gardens confined to a Hele-Shaw cell and corroding metal plates that undergo filiform corrosion. We show that the two systems are in fact very much alike. Our experiments and analysis show that filament dynamics obey similar scaling laws in both instances: filament motion is nearly ballistic and fully self-avoiding, which creates self-trapping events.
