Abstract

The state of the art of the interface tracking and bubble tracking methods for bubbly flow simulation is briefly reviewed. The advantage and disadvantage of these methods are discussed. Then, the examples of simulations of air bubble rising through a liquid using two types of interface tracking methods are shown to demonstrate the role played by these advanced numerical methods in physical modeling and understanding of bubble dynamics.. 1 Introduction Due to the existence of complex moving boundaries, most of the numerical
