Abstract:Experiments to study the effect of acoustic forces on individual bubbles in shear flows have been carried out. In the system that we have used, the competition between acoustic and fluid dynamical forces results in a spiraling bubble trajectory. This dynamics is modeled by expressing the balance between Bjerknes and hydrodynamic forces in terms of an ordinary differential equation model, to which a separation of time scales is applied. The success of this model shows that the simple force-balance approach is still meaningful when bubbles are subjected to sound fields.
