The literature model studied in this article describes bubble formation
and growth in a highly viscous polymer liquid with support of a gaseous
matter dispersed under pressure before foaming. The foam growth is
induced by the application of vacuum and mass transport of volatile
components dissolved in the polymer liquid. Based on this literature
model, aeration processes are calculated for intermediate viscosity and
low viscosity biological systems, as they are of interest for biomatter
foams, in particular for food foams in industrial processes. At the end
of this article, the numerical results are presented and discussed.
