Numerical simulations of the dynamics of Taylor bubble in the presence of small-dispersed bubbles
This numerical study investigates the dynamics around a single Taylor bubble rising with small-dispersed bubbles in a vertical pipeline. The Volume-of-fluid (VOF) method in Ansys Fluent 18.1 is used
Hydrodynamics of oscillating slug flow inside mini channels: a state of art review
Improvements in the fabrication capability have given rise to mini/micro systems for heat and mass transfer operations. The motion of uniform/oscillating menisci or air-plug/liquid slug inside such

Buoyancy-Driven Motion of Bubbles in the Presence of Soluble Surfactants in a Newtonian Fluid
We present our experimental results for the effect of bulk-soluble surfactants on the buoyancy-driven motion of an air bubble rising in square and rectangular channels filled with an immiscible liq...
Numerical simulation of bubbles and drops in complex geometries by using dynamic meshes
The proposal of this doctoral thesis is focused on developing numerical algorithms to optimize the simulations of multiphase solvers based on single fluids formulations, applied on three-dimensional unstructured meshes, in the context of a finite-volume discretization.


Pressure-driven motion of drops and bubbles through cylindrical capillaries : Effect of buoyancy
We examine the motion and deformation of air bubbles and viscous drops through vertical cylindrical capillaries in the presence of an imposed pressure-driven flow. Experimental measurements of the
Transport of gas bubbles in capillaries
The pressure drop and wetting film thickness for isolated bubbles and bubble trains moving in circular and square capillaries are computed. An arclength‐angle formulation of a composite lubrication
Buoyancy-driven motion of viscous drops through cylindrical capillaries at small Reynolds numbers
We examine the buoyancy-driven motion and deformation of viscous drops through vertical cylindrical capillaries under conditions where interfacial tension effects are important while inertial effects
The motion of long bubbles in polygonal capillaries. Part 2. Drag, fluid pressure and fluid flow
This work determines the pressure–velocity relation of bubble flow in polygonal capillaries. The liquid pressure drop needed to drive a long bubble at a given velocity U is solved by an integral
The motion of long bubbles in polygonal capillaries. Part 1. Thin films
Foam in porous media exhibits an unusually high apparent viscosity, making it useful in many industrial processes. The rheology of foam, however, is complex and not well understood. Previous

As a viscous fluid in a vertical tube drains under the effect of gravity, a finger of air rises in the tube. The shape of the interface and the rate at which the finger rises is determined
The motion of long bubbles in tubes of square cross section
The flow of a long bubble in an otherwise liquid‐filled tube is a hydrodynamics problem with interesting practical applications in enhanced oil recovery, the coating of monolithic structures, and
The deformation and breakup of liquid drops in low Reynolds number flow through a capillary
The deformation and breakup of a freely suspended, immiscible liquid drop are examined experimentally for low Reynolds number flow in a straight circular capillary tube. Results are reported for
The motion of long bubbles in tubes
A long bubble of a fluid of negligible viscosity is moving steadily in a tube filled with liquid of viscosity μ at small Reynolds number, the interfacial tension being σ. The angle of contact at the
Formation of bubbles in a simple co-flowing micro-channel
Bubble generation in a simple co-flowing micro-channel with a cross-sectional area of 1.69 × 0.07 mm2 was experimentally and numerically investigated. Air and water were used as the gas and liquid,
