Abstract

There are several volume tracking algorithms for numerical simulation of gas-liquid two-phase bubbly flow based on an interface tracking method Among them, FLAIR (Flux Line-Segment Model for Advection and Interface Reconstruction ) was reported as the best algorithm to predict convection of interface. However, FLAIR has not been tested for actual bubbly flow in which the effects of surface tension, drag force and buoyancy forces are dominant In the present study, we appli
