Abstract: Abstract The dynamics of a large number of bubbles separated by distances of the order of their radii in highly viscous fluids with specific application to foams is investigated. The growth of bubbles is due to diffusion of gas from the fluid and the momentum transfer between the fluid and the bubbles. Equations governing the growth of a single bubble in a shell of fluid containing limited dissolved agas are coupled with the transport equations for the fluid under non‐isothermal conditions. The resulting set …
