Visualization of droplets, bubbles and sprays

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The work presented in this paper has been conducted over a long period of time to gain insight into the phenomena which govern the change of phase, and the motion of bubbles and droplets. The results described in this work were obtained in three systems: a liquid droplet, a condensing bubble, and an evaporating spray, all in an immiscible liquid. Screen-tracing of a video-taped droplet, its position, vertical and horizontal, in an immiscible liquid coupled with the photographically recorded position and shape of the colored wake, have outlined the relationship between the droplet motion and the wake configuration. Stroboscopic photography was applied to sprays of evaporating bubbles in measurements of instantaneous sizes, and velocities.
