Abstract
In this work, Direct Numerical Simulations of gravity-driven motion of a swarm of bubbles in a vertical pipe are presented. These simulations were carried out in the contex of a multiple marker level-set methodology, which is integrated in a finite volume framework on collocated unstructured grids. Each fluid particle is described by a separate level-set function, thus, different interfaces can be solved at the same control volume, avoiding the coalescence of the bubbles. Present simulations hav...
