# Bubble Oscillations of Large Amplitude

@article{Keller1980BubbleOO, title={Bubble Oscillations of Large Amplitude}, author={Joseph B. Keller and Michael J. Miksis}, journal={Journal of the Acoustical Society of America}, year={1980}, volume={68}, pages={628-633} }

A new equation is derived for large amplitude forced radial oscillations of a bubble in an incident sound field. It includes the effects of acoustic radiation, as in Keller and Kolodner’s equation, and the effects of viscosity and surface tension, as in the modified Rayleigh equation due to Plesset, Noltingk and Neppiras, and Poritsky. The free and forced periodic solutions are computed numerically. For large bubbles, such as underwater explosion bubbles, the free oscillations agree with those…
