Abstract

Multiple bubble dynamics is analysed involving interactions between bubbles and also between bubbles and adjacent boundaries. In the current work, the adaptive cross approximation (ACA) BEM model is employed to study a \“bubble cloud”. Three major factors are discussed, i.e., the presence of an adjacent solid wall and bubble volume fraction. The impact of the cloud on surrounding boundaries is studied. Keywords: multiple bubble dynamics, bubble cloud, adaptive cross approximation, boundary element method.
