Abstract

This paper presents theory and experimental data on the resonance frequency of systems consisting of different-sized air bubbles attached to a rigid wall. Effects of the change in resonant frequency with bubble size and distance between the bubbles were studied. It was found that the symmetric mode resonance frequency of the bubble system decreased with increasing r=R(02)/R(01), where R(01) and R(02) are the equilibrium radii of bubbles in the system. Both the symmetric and antisymmetric modes of oscillation were detected in the experiments, with the resonant frequency of the symmetric mode dominant at small bubble separation and the frequency of the antisymmetric mode dominant when the bubb..
