Simulations not seen before compare turbulent mixing rates for ideal fluids and for real immiscible fluids with experimental values for the surface tension. The simulated real fluid mixing rates lie near the center of the range of experimental values. A comparison to theoretical predictions relating the mixing rate, the bubble width, and the bubble height fluctuations based on bubble merger models shows good agreement with experiment. The ideal fluid mixing rate is some 50% larger, providing an… CONTINUE READING
