Abstract
Furthermore, a two-dimensional two-phase modeling was built and studied with COMSOL software. The phase-field method was used. This model is capable of captur-ing the bubble characteristics including its growth, movements, size and departure frequency. In comparison with experiments, the numerical results showed good agree-ment to the bubble size and departure frequency.
