Comptes Rendus
On the slow motion of a cluster of bubbles under the combined action of gravity and thermocapillarity
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 333 (2005) no. 2, pp. 111-116.

The slow migration of N spherical bubbles under combined buoyancy and thermocapillarity effects is investigated by appealing solely to 3N+1 boundary-integral equations. In addition to the theory and the associated implementation strategy, preliminary numerical results are both presented and discussed for a few clusters involving 2, 3, 4 or 5 bubbles with a special attention paid to the case of rigid configurations.

On détermine la migration de N bulles sphériques sous l'action combinée de la pesanteur et d'effets thermocapillaires par la seule résolution de 3N+1 équations de frontière. Outre la théorie et sa mise en oeuvre numérique on présente les premiers résultats obtenus pour quelques situations à 2, 3, 4 ou 5 bulles avec une attention particulière pour les configurations rigides.
