For turbulent bubbly flows, multi-phase simulations resolving both the liquid and bubbles are prohibitively expensive in the context of different natural phenomena. One example is breaking waves, where bubbles strongly influence wave impact loads, acoustic emissions, and atmospheric-ocean transfer, but detailed simulations in all but the simplest settings are infeasible. An alternative approach is to resolve only large scales, and model small scale bubbles adopting sub-resolution closures. Here we… 



Bubble entrainment and liquid–bubble interaction under unsteady breaking waves

Abstract Liquid–bubble interaction, especially in complex two-phase bubbly flow under breaking waves, is still poorly understood. In the present study, we perform a large-eddy simulation using a

Modeling and simulation of multiple bubble entrainment and interactions with two dimensional vortical flows

Simulations of bubble entrainment and interactions with two dimensional vortical flows are preformed using a discrete element model. In this Eulerian-Lagrangian approach, solution to the carrier

High-resolution direct simulation of deep water breaking waves: transition to turbulence, bubbles and droplets production

Abstract We present high-resolution three-dimensional (3-D) direct numerical simulations of breaking waves solving for the two-phase Navier–Stokes equations. We investigate the role of the Reynolds

The turbulent bubble break-up cascade. Part 2. Numerical simulations of breaking waves

Abstract Breaking waves generate a distribution of bubble sizes that evolves over time. Knowledge of how this distribution evolves is of practical importance for maritime and climate studies. The

Large-eddy simulation of bubbly turbulent shear flows

This paper reports on recent advances in the application of the large-eddy simulation (LES) approach to turbulent, vertical mixing layers containing bubbles at low void fraction. The method is based

The turbulent bubble break-up cascade. Part 1. Theoretical developments

Abstract Breaking waves entrain gas beneath the surface. The wave-breaking process energizes turbulent fluctuations that break bubbles in quick succession to generate a wide range of bubble sizes.

Scale dependence of bubble creation mechanisms in breaking waves

This work has measured bubble size distributions inside breaking waves in the laboratory and in the open ocean, and provides a quantitative description of bubble formation mechanisms inside whitecaps, finding two distinct mechanisms controlling the size distribution, depending on bubble size.
