Abstract

The effects of various factors such as liquid viscosity, gas chamber volume, orifice diameter and gas flow rate on the volume of bubbles formed in highly viscous Newtonian liquids in the presence of pressure change in the gas chamber were investigated experimentally. Dimensionless equations were obtained by correlating these experimental results. The experimental results of previous works were also correlated by these dimensionless equations. It becomes possible to predict the bubble volume over a wide range of liquid viscosities by these correlation equations.
