Abstract

The aim of this paper is to utilize a numerical model to compute bubble motion in quiescent Newtonian and viscoelastic liquids. For our numerical method, we use a coupled level set and volume-of-fluid method with a second order treatment for the jump conditions related to surface tension. We investigate axisymmetric gas-liquid systems with large density and viscosity ratios as well as buoyancy-driven flows with complex changes in topology. We present comparisons to previous computational results as well as experimental results.
