Turbulent mass transfer near gas-liquid interfaces in water and shear-thinning dilute polymer solution

Abstract

Turbulence is known to enhance gas-liquid mass transfer and mixing of high Schmidt number dissolved gases in water by deforming the concentration boundary layer that develops at the interface. Fundamental mechanisms of surface renewal and injection have been progressively evidenced throughout the last decades, via fundamental experiments of low mean shear turbulence interacting with flat interfaces in water. However, and despite the obvious influence of non-Newtonian behaviours on gas liquid mass transfer in industrial and environmental applications, not such study exists (to the best of the author's knowledge) on whether and how these mechanisms apply in shear-thinning dilute polymer solutions (DPS). Following a previous work on near surface hydrodynamics, turbulent mass transfer and mixing is studied in a weakly shear-thinning fluid, and compared to the Newtonian, water case. Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (SPIV) and Inhibited Planar Laser Induced fluorescence are used simultaneously to measure the local liquid phase velocity and dissolved gas concentration fields respectively. Coupled measurements are used to estimate the turbulent mass fluxes, which are interpreted using a conditional quadrant analysis. Results show that in DPS as well as in water, surface renewal is the most frequent mechanism, but injection events are the most efficient in terms of mass transfer. Even
