Bubble Rise Phenomena through Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids

Kabir, Aslam, Slater, Aaron, Khan, Masud, & Rackemann, Darryn (2005) Bubble Rise Phenomena through Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids. In Yazheng, Yang, Yanan, Tang, & Junli, Liu (Eds.) 4th Pacific Rim Conference on Rheology, 7-11 August 2005, China, Shanghai.


The characteristics of bubble rise phenomenon in three liquids were investigated and are reported here. The experimental rig consists of two transparent cylindrical columns – one a polycarbonate tube of 125 mm diameter and the other an acrylic tube of 400 mm diameter. The rig also consists of a lifting device designed to hold a video camera for taking bubble images. Water and two non-Newtonian fluids (0.025% and 0.045% by weight of polyacrylamide solutions) were used in this study. The smaller polycarbonate tube was used to study the velocity and the drag coefficient under vacuum. The bigger acrylic tube was used to study the influence of the size of bubbles.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
