Waves in bubbly liquids with phase change


In a previous paper (C. Boutin, J.-L. Auriault, Acoustics of a bubbly fluid at large bubble concentration, Eur. J. Mech. B/Fluids, 12(3) (1993) 367-399), the homogenization technique was used to investigate how acoustic waves propagate in a bubbly fluid at finite concentration. Three different equivalent macroscopic behaviours were shown to exist, for "large"-, "medium"- and "small"-size bubble systems, respectively. In the present paper, we extend the analysis by taking into consideration possible phase change effects. We show that phase change effects are negligible in the case of large-size bubbles, whereas they strongly modify the medium-size bubble system behaviour. For small-size bubbles capillarity dominates the process.
