Dynamics of Laser-Induced Cavitation Bubbles in Polymer Solutions
The behaviour of laser-induced cavitation bubbles in polymer solutions with different rheological properties has been investigated by means of high–speed photography and compared with the behaviour of bubbles in water. In the case of an unbounded liquid, the dynamics can be described with Gilmore's model neglecting the non-Newtonian effects. In contrast to the dynamics of spherical bubbles, the effect of polymer additives is more evident for bubbles situated in the neighbourhood of a solid boundary. The intensity of the re–entering jet is diminished and even suppressed by the additives.
