The objective of this paper is to understand how and why the orifice nature (rigid or flexible) governs the bubble generation. The differences in orifice nature and properties have strong consequences on the bubbles generated. Indeed, the dynamics of the formation and the nature of the detached bubbles are fundamentally different depending on whether the bubbles are generated from the rigid orifice or from the flexible orifice. Keywords. Gas-Liquid reactors, aeration, rigid and flexible orifices, bubble formation dynamics. Résumé. L’objectif de cette étude est de comprendre comment et pourquoi la nature de l’orifice (rigide ou flexible) contrôle la génération de bulles. Les différences de nature et de propriétés entre les deux orifices ont des conséquences notables sur les bulles générées. En effet, la dynamique de formation et la nature des bulles détachées sont fondamentalement différentes selon si elles sont générées par un orifice rigide ou par un orifice flexible.
