Two axisymmetric dimensional Eulerian/Eulerian simulations of two-phase (gas/liquid) transient flow were performed using a multiphase flow algorithm based on the finite-volume method to simulate bubble population balance modelling for both stationary and rotating columns. Quantitative agreements between the previous experimental data and present simulations are obtained for the averaged axial liquid velocity profiles. An important conclusion from these numerical results is that the centrifugal force is pulling the bubbles towards the axis of rotation and shifts them away from the wall.
