Abstract : We aimed at studying non-miscible two-fluid flows in a bounded domain in order to better understand and to predict the overall process of bubbly flows in nuclear reactors. A system of PDEs has been derived from the Navier-Stokes equations under a low Mach number assumption and named DLMN. As a preliminary, we prove in this thesis existence and uniqueness results for two sets of PDEs endowed with smooth initial data (Sobolev spaces) and consisting of hyperbolic, parabolic and elliptic equations. In particular, we deal with an abstract bubble vibration model (ABV). In addition to the proof of the short time existence result, we show that there exist global solutions in dimension $1$ no matter what smooth initial data. We also demonstrate several properties satisfied by potential solutions. We then carry out numerical simulations by means of an unconditionally stable second-order scheme based on the method of characteristics (for smooth solutions) or a coupling between an antidiffusive scheme and an adaptive mesh refinement algorithm (in case of discontinuities).
