Exploring Taylor Bubble Dynamics in Annular Conduits with Counter-Current Flow

EasyChair Preprint no. 12578

7 pagesDate: March 18, 2024


This research paper investigates the dynamics of Taylor bubbles in annular conduits under conditions of counter-current flow. Taylor bubbles, elongated gas pockets formed within liquid-filled cylindrical tubes, exhibit complex behaviors influenced by various factors including fluid properties and flow configurations. In this study, we explore the interactions between Taylor bubbles and counter-current liquid flow within annular geometries, aiming to elucidate the mechanisms governing bubble rise, deformation, and breakup. Both experimental observations and numerical simulations are employed to investigate the effects of flow rate ratios, fluid properties, and conduit geometry on bubble dynamics. The findings provide valuable insights into the fundamental aspects of multiphase flow in annular conduits and offer implications for diverse applications such as petroleum engineering, chemical processing, and heat exchanger design.
