The combined effect of electric forces and confinement ratio on the bubble rising
Rahmat, Amin and Tofighi, Nima and Yıldız, Mehmet (2017) The combined effect of electric forces and confinement ratio on the bubble rising. (Accepted/In Press)
In this work, the combined effect of electrohydrodynamic forces and domain confinement on the for- mation of a toroidal bubble is numerically studied. The numerical scheme is the Volume of Fluid (VOF) method and the surface tension and electric forces are implemented using the Continuum Surface Force (CSF) and leaky dielectric models, respectively. It is found that both domain confinement and electric forces are influential on the formation of a toroidal bubble. For smaller confinement ratios, larger electric forces are required to pierce the bubble. Moreover, the influence of both electric forces and confinement ratio are presented and discussed for bubble vertical velocity, terminal Reynolds number, velocity stream- lines and side-wall shear stress.
