Analysis of the Finite Mass Transfer Models in the Numerical Simulation of Bubbly Flows
Paper in proceeding, 2018

In this study, the effect of empirical constants on the performance of the finite mass transfer models as well as some numerical issues of the model are investigated through the numerical analysis of the Rayleigh problem and the collapse of a bubble cluster. Also, by implementing the exact bubble radius profile into the model, it is shown that the pressure field can be very well estimated by the model.
