Surfactant transport from foam film to foam film is an essential (yet poorly understood) aspect of the viscoplastic yielding behaviour of flowing foam. Recent experimental and modelling work by Bussonnière & Cantat (2021) has however helped to advance understanding of the relevant surfactant transport processes: the significance of that work is described herein.
