We experimentally, numerically and theoretically investigate the nonlinear interaction between a cavitation bubble and the interface of two immiscible fluids (oil and water) on multiple time scales. The underwater electric discharge method is utilized to generate a cavitation bubble near or at the interface. Both the bubble dynamics on a short time scale and the interface evolution on a much longer time scale are recorded via high-speed photography. Two mechanisms are found to contribute to the fluid mixing in our system. First, when a bubble is initiated in the oil phase or at the interface, an inertia-dominated high-speed liquid jet generated from the collapsing bubble penetrates the water–oil interface, and consequently transports fine oil droplets into the water. The critical standoff parameter for jet penetration is found to be highly dependent on the density ratio of the two fluids. Furthermore, the pinch-off of an interface jet produced long after the bubble dynamics stage is reckoned as the second mechanism, carrying water droplets into the oil bulk. The dependence of the bubble jetting behaviours and interface jet dynamics on the governing parameters is systematically studied via experiments and boundary integral simulations. Particularly, we quantitatively demonstrate the respective roles of surface tension and viscosity in interface jet dynamics. As for a bubble initiated at the interface, an extended Rayleigh–Plesset model is proposed that well predicts the asymmetric dynamics of the bubble, which accounts for a faster contraction of the bubble top and a downward liquid jet.

We study systematically the cavitation-induced wall shear stress on rigid boundaries as a function of liquid viscosity $\mu$ and stand-off distance $\gamma$ using axisymmetric volume of fluid (VoF) simulations. Here, $\gamma =d/R_{max}$ is defined with the initial distance of bubble centre from the wall $d$ and the bubble equivalent radius at its maximum expansion $R_{max}$ . The simulations predict accurately the overall bubble dynamics and the time-dependent liquid film thickness between the bubble and the wall prior to the collapse. The spatial and temporal wall shear stress is discussed in detail as a function of $\gamma$ and the inverse Reynolds number $1/Re$ . The amplitude of the wall shear stress is investigated over a large parameter space of viscosity and stand-off distance. The inward stress is caused by the shrinking bubble and its maximum value $\tau _{mn}$ follows $\tau _{mn} Re^{0.35}=-70\gamma +110$ (kPa) for $0.5<\gamma <1.4$ . The expanding bubble and jet spreading on the boundary produce an outward-directed stress. The maximum outward stress is generated shortly after impact of the jet during the early spreading. We find two scaling laws for the maximum outward stress $\tau _{mp}$ with $\tau _{mp} \sim \mu ^{0.2} h_{jet}^{-0.3} U_{jet}^{1.5}$ for $0.5\leq \gamma \leq 1.1$ and $\tau _{mp} \sim \mu ^{-0.25} h_{jet}^{-1.5} U_{jet}^{1.5}$ for $\gamma \geq 1.1$ , where $U_{jet}$ is the jet impact velocity and $h_{jet}$ is the distance between lower bubble interface and wall prior to impact.

Abstract The purpose of this investigation is to study the mechanisms of boiling heat transfer in microgravity conditions. The RUBI (Reference mUltiscale Boiling Investigation) is an experiment where the basic phenomena of boiling heat transfer processes on a heated surface are investigated on the ISS (International Space Station). The special focus is paid to the coupling of macroscopic bubble dynamics from nucleation, growth and detachment combined with the microscopic phenomena in the thin films and micro layers on the heater, underneath the boiling bubbles. The image treatment program has been developed in order to extract the bubble volume as well as the contact angle from the experimental images. The first data of the bubble growth dynamics have been obtained and analysed.
