@article{osti_, title = {Two phase pressure drop across abrupt area changes in oscillatory flow}, author = {Weisman, J. and Ake, T. and Knott, R.}, abstractNote = {The ability of one-dimensional momentum balances to predict behavior during two-phase oscillatory flow has been examined.

Flow oscillations in a Freon-Freon vapor system were induced by cycling a three. The irreversible pressure drop caused by sheer stress at the wall, sometimes also called distributed pressure drop, because it occurs all along the lengths of the flow channel, is determined by: () Δ p = f L D h ∙ W 2 2 ρ A 2 where f is the friction factor and D h is the hydraulic diameter (equal to four times flow area/wetted perimeter Cited by: 1.

pressure drops across various components of a prototype rod fuel bundle of AHWR. From the measured values of pressure drops, the friction factor for fuel bundle and the loss coefficients for the tie plates and spacers were estimated. The single-phase experimental data were compared with different existing correlations.

Therefore, the objective of this study is to conduct frictional and two-phase flow visualization of air–water two-phase flow through two 90° glass bends subject to upward, downward and horizontal arrangements. The internal diameters and curvature ratio of two bends are D = and mm, 2R/D = andrespectively.

To interpret our data of flow rates, pressure drops, and saturations, we have used the generalized Darcy‘s law. The data showed that, contrary to what is commonly assumed, the relative permeability factors are not linearly dependent on saturations.

Thus, KrL is not a uniqueCited by: 2.

The accuracy of predicting two-phase flow pressure drops in heat exchanger devices is quite important in the design and performance optimization of refrigeration systems.

For a simple example, if the predicting method shows a higher value compared to the real value, the material design will cost by: Experimental values of flow rate, phases superficial velocity, extraction ratio and pressure drops across the tee junction pipes are here reported. Pressure drop test results across the inlet and branch pipes have also been compared with predicted ones.

In fluid mechanics, two-phase flow is a flow of gas and liquid — a particular example of multiphase -phase flow can occur in various forms, such as flows transitioning from pure liquid to vapor as a result of external heating, separated flows, and dispersed two-phase flows where one phase is present in the form of particles, droplets, or bubbles in a continuous carrier.

Calculating Two-Phase Pressure Drop Scott S. Haraburda, PE ([email protected]) The flow type of two-phase liquid-gas flow can be characterized into one of seven types the separate pressure drops for both the liquid and the gas are used explicitly, along with the pressure ratio.

Using these, a unique. between the numerical results and the experimental data, good agreement is obtained.
