Abstract

An experimental study on flow around two similarly-sized, adjacent air bubbles confined in a 1000 mm vertical, square channel (100 × 100 mm2) with downward flow of water was conducted. The bubbles were D = 11.7 mm in major diameter, ellipsoidal in shape (0.4 ml volume) and 12 mm apart. The Reynolds and Eotvos numbers were 1950 < ReD < 2250, 11 < Eo < 11.5 such that the bubbles oscillated. Velocity measurements were taken using Digital Particle Image Velocimetry, complemented by Laser Induced Fluorescence. Simultaneously, a second CCD camera recorded the shadow image of the bubble pair's motions. Visualization revealed that the bubbles move out of phase and do not collide nor coalesce. The velocity data revealed the dynamic interaction of two wake-flow velocity fields with a jet-like flow in-between. From the DPIV data, estimates of the vorticity, Reynolds-stress and turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) distributions confirmed the spatio-temporal nature of the flow. Details will be presented.
