Bubble injection in convective flows has proven to be a useful method of enhancing heat transfer. In order to understand the underlying physics behind bubble induced heat transfer enhancement, in this thesis we study the global and local flow statistics in a canonical vertical natural convection flow with bubble injection. Additionally, we have designed and built a new experimental facility Twente Mass and Heat Transfer Water Tunnel, which allows for global temperature control, bubble injection and local heat/mass injection. This setup will be used for studying of heat and mass transfer in turbulent multiphase flows.
