In industry, bubble columns are widely used. However, the knowledge on the hydrodynamics in the bubble column is limited. To increase this knowledge, computational fluid dynamics are used. In this research, the Volume of Fluid (VoF) model is used to study the coalescence of bubbles. Bubbles in the VoF model merge automatically when their surfaces share the same numerical grid cell. To determine, if the coalescence of the bubbles in the VoF model is physical, the results of the VoF model are compared to experimental results.
