An experimental study of dynamic processes during pulsed gas injection into quiescent liquids was performed. Both water and low melting temperature metal alloy were used as test liquids. Air and argon were used as gas phase. The test sections were vertical cylindrical columns 25 and 68 mm inner diameter. Measurements of flow parameters during gas injection were performed. Water – air experiments were performed at room temperature, the temperature of liquid metal alloy was 135 deg C. Time records of pressure in the liquid and in gas phase above the liquid were obtained. Measurements of liquid temperature and level of liquid surface were performed. It was shown that at pulse gas injection into liquid metal high amplitude pressure fluctuation may arise. Also the fluctuation variation of the free surface of the liquid may appear which are connected with the oscillations of the gas volume. Experimental data obtained may be used for verification & validation of modern CFD codes.
