Hello,

I am doinfg the simulation of buuble column. The air is coming from the bottom of the contener. Already stgnant water is 2/3 in the contener.
So, Can anyone say me which is my secondary phase. I want to study of air-bubble motion.

Please suggest me.

With Regards,
Gitesh.

use value of 0.072. btw, this is important when the scales are pretty low ..curvature effects are dominant only at small scales..the values for the size you are looking can be off by 10-15% ..the difference one would notice with varying surface tension is the nature of liquid-air bubble interface..like increased or decreased interfacial corrugations ..
