Abstract

Initially, a growing vapour bubble is blown up due to an excess pressure. Continued bubble growth is governed by heat and mass diffusion. The combination of both mechanisms during the transition period may result in the occurrence of oscillations in the equivalent bubble radius. Experimental data on the oscillations of growing and imploding vapour bubbles in water are in quantitative agreement with theoretical predictions.
