Modeling of dynamics of compressible bubbles in acoustic fields at low Reynolds numbers is of interest for a number of contemporary micro- and nanotechnologies. Despite the boundary element method (BEM) is an appropriate method to simulate deformation of three-dimensional bubbles computation of compressible bubbles dynamics using conventional BEM causes difficulties due to degeneration of the resulting system of equations. In the present approach additional relations based on the Lorentz reciprocity principle are used to resolve the problem. The approach is validated by test simulations of dynamics of single bubbles and bubble clusters including strong bubble-bubble interaction in acoustic fields and shear flows.
