In order to clear the two-phase flow behavior under earthquake, a systematic study is done experimentally and numerically. The present study is one on the series of the study on two-phase flow under earthquake, and focuses on the flow rate fluctuation. The flow rate fluctuation was added to bubbly or plug flow in a horizontal pipe, and flow behavior was measured by PIV and image processing. The bubble deformation near the pipe wall was observed and the velocity field around the bubble was shown. The bubble coalescence was also observed under the flow rate fluctuation condition.
