(238d) On Bubble Size Distributions in Bubble Columns in the Heterogeneous Regime

Ramkrishna, D., Purdue University
Joshi, J. B., University Institute of Chemical Technology

Computational fluid dynamics and population balance modeling are combined to produce the spatial distribution of bubbles of different sizes in a bubble column and compared successfully with experiments obtained by Laser Doppler Anemometry. In particular, the inclusion of a lift force provides for the proper spatial distribution.
