Semi-transparent media containing bubbles

DOI: 10.1615/thermopedia.000169


In many natural phenomena as well as materials processing and manufacturing situations, the presence of bubbles affects the thermophysical and radiative properties of the two-phase system and hence the transport phenomena. It is well known that radiation scattering by bubbles in the visible and infrared spectral ranges affects the optical properties of semitransparent substances. Several issues are important to keep in mind: the influence of bubbles on light scattering in the ocean (Zhang et al., 1998), the role of vapor bubbles in high-temperature radiative heating of boiling water (Dombrovsky, 2004), and the glass melting process in industrial furnaces, where bubbles are gene ...
