Turbulent gas-liquid channel flows exhibit very diverse and complex flow patterns, which have been classified in several regimes. The occurrence of each regime depends primarily on the gas and liquid flow rates in the channel, but the gas injection method may also significantly influence the flow regime. This video illustrates this injector effect and portrays the beauty and musicality of gas-liquid flows in sync with the accelerating rhythm of Zorba’s Dance
