Author Affiliations +
Results of the experimental study of changes in the bubble size statistics during aging of wet foams are discussed. It is proposed that the evolution of the bubble radii distributions can be described in terms of the one dimensional Fokker- Planck equation. The empirical distributions of the bubble radii exhibit a self-similarity of their shapes and can be transformed to a time-independent form using the radius renormalization. Analysis of obtained data allows us to suggest that the drift term of the Fokker-Planck equation dominates in comparison with the diffusion term in the case of aging of isolated quasi-stable wet foams.
