Flow and thermal characteristics of the Marangoni convection (thermo-capillary flow) around a micro-bubble are described in this study for the case of the bubble attached to the microchannel wall and the wall heated locally (hot spot applied). By providing heat source near the bubble and generating temperature gradient on the bubble surface Marangoni convection can be produced in the surrounding fluid. In micro-scale this effect is significant and strong vortices and streaming flow can be formed in the channel. We investigate the effects of the hot spot location on the temperature field and vortex structure based on the numerical simulation. Circulating flow is generated when the hot spot is located at the center of the bubble, while a pair of strong vortices appears in the case when the position of the hot spot moves away from the center position. Further, we evaluate the effect of the heat conduction and temperature dependency of the fluid viscosity on the temperature field and resulting Marangoni convection. To compare the present results with the measurement visualizing the flow by using particles, we solve the equation of motion of the particles and evaluate the contribution rate of each force term. The results show that the trajectory of the particle basically follow the streamline but can deviate from it for a certain degree at the location where the streamline curvature is large.
