@article{Vlachomitrou2017DynamicSO, title={Dynamic simulation of a coated microbubble in an unbounded flow: response to a step change in pressure}, author={M. Vlachomitrou and N. Pelekasis}, journal={Journal of Fluid Mechanics}, year={2017}, volume={822}, pages={717 - 761} }

A numerical method is developed to study the dynamic behaviour of an encapsulated bubble when the viscous forces of the surrounding liquid are accounted for. The continuity and Navier–Stokes equations are solved for the liquid, whereas the coating is described as a viscoelastic shell with bending resistance. The Galerkin Finite Element Methodology is employed for the spatial discretization of the flow domain surrounding the bubble, with the standard staggered grid arrangement that uses…
