Experimental investigation of the interaction between a pulsating bubble and a rigid cylinder

In this paper, the behavior of a bubble near a rigid cylinder is studied experimentally as the positions of bubble induction change, and several cylinders with different diameters are used in the experiment. The main results are as follows. The behavior of a bubble near a rigid cylinder is distinct from that near a rigid plate. When the cylinders are laid in deep water, there will occur three kinds of typical bubble shapes as the distance between bubble and cylinder increases. And the bubble shapes are different as the diameter of cylinder varies. When the cylinders are laid near a free surface, the behaviors of bubble near cylinders with different diameters are similar. For a certain distance between bubble and free surface, as the distance between bubble and cylinder increases, “double jet”, “inclined jet” and “downward jet” will take place successively.
