Simulation of Rising Bubbles

This animation shows the generation of gas underneath the bottom of a horizontal electrode during electrolysis, with subsequent gas release in a side channel. The blue iso-surface represents 50% gas volume fraction. A homogeneous two-phase model was used, with surface tension and the free surface included.

If the animation does not load or is of poor quality, try running this compiled Smacker file: m1.exe (1.8MB).

Note that this is an executable file, and should be suitable for all PCs running Win95 or later. For more information about Smacker and its compiled executables, please follow this link.
