Abstract

An improved meshless numerical method (MPS-MAFL) is utilized to simulate single Taylor bubble rising in liquid LBE to study its hydrodynamic characteristics. The computational region is a circular tube in which the liquid is described using discretized particles by un-uniform grid scheme. The gas-liquid interface was approximately treated as a free surface boundary and nonslip conditions are applied on tube wall. Several simulation results and corresponding analysis including Taylor bubble propagation procedure, pressure distribution, velocity profile around bubble nose and in the wake region as well as in the falling film are presented. Some experimental results and CFD numerical simulations from other previous researchers are compared with the present study as validation. The simulation results agree well with both theoretical analysis and experimental results, which demonstrate the reasonable selection of model as well as the accuracy and reliability of moving particle method.
