Lateral migration of a single bubble rising in the vicinity of a vertical flat plate was measured to evaluate a wall force acting on the bubble. Experimental results indicated that a wall force coefficient CW3 is a function of the bubble Reynolds number Re and the Eo¨tvo¨s number Eo. Empirical correlations of CW3 were deduced for bubbles and particles. It was confirmed that the wall force model proposed by one of the authors and the proposed correlations of CW3 are applicable not only to high viscousity systems but also for low viscousity systems, provided that a bubble does not collide with the wall.
