Abstract
The talk is on impacts, penetrations and lift-offs involving bodies and fluids, with applications that range from aircraft and ship safety and our tiny everyday scales of splashing and washing, up to surface movements on Mars. Several studies over recent years have addressed different aspects of air-water effects and fluid-body interplay theoretically. Nonlinear interactions and evolutions are key here and these are to be considered in the presentation. Connections with experiments will also be described.
