BEHAVIOR OF A VAPOR BUBBLE IN A PULSATING PRESSURE FIELD
The response of a vapor-gas bubble to a sinusoidal pressure pulsation Is analyzed. The cases of a spherical bubble In an Infinite body of liquid and a truncated spherical bubble attached to a wall are examined. The interior of the bubble is assumed to be a mixture of saturated vapor and noncondensable gas. The frequency response function is obtained and includes the effects of frequency, bubble size, and liquid subcooling. Experimental results of bubbles in water and on metal surfaces are compared with the analysis.
