After a previous investigation of the rising motion of a gas bubble in the liquid GaInSn under the influence of a vertical MF, this chapter focuses on the case of a uniform horizontal MF. Similarly, in order to allow some benchmark, most of the parameters selected for this new investigation are the same as in an experiment recently performed in Dresden, Germany. The Ar bubble diameter is either 4.3 mm or 6.4 mm, and the liquid metal is still GaInSn, resulting in Reynolds numbers in the parameter space of \(2000<Re<4000\), which is typically larger than that rising in water. The research is carried out in a similar manner, by investigating the influence of the horizontal MF on the rising velocity, the rising path, the vortex structures and the shape of the bubble, and finally, we give a brief comparison of the numerical results between the vertical and horizontal MFs.
