Abstract

In this paper numerical results on reactive mass transfer from single gas bubbles to a surrounding liquid are presented. The underlying numerical method is based on the solution of the incompressible two-phase Navier-Stokes equations. The Volume-of-Fluid method is applied for the description of the liquid-gas interface. Within the numerical approach the concentration of the transfer component is represented by two separate variables, one for each phase. Numerical results are in good agreement with experimental data.
