Abstract
The computational geometry models of one bubble and two bubbles in viscous fluid were built. The Volume of Fluid model and pressure-velocity coupling solution method are used to solve the movement equation of air bubbles to investigate the movement, coalescence, and collapse of air bubbles. The results show at the beginning, the shape of the air bubble changes to ellipse from circle. The velocity of the air bubble greatly increases when the air bubble collapses; in the meanwhile the jet flow is produced. After the bubble collapses, the velocity of the oil decreases gradually. The movement velocity of two air bubbles is greater than that of one bubble.
