  • Content Description: Westinghouse Savannah River Company, Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, and Wyle Laboratory cooperated in a series of single- and two-component calibration tests conducted to obtain sufficient information for calibrating flowmeters, to observe flow patterns, and to estimate void functions. Testing, conducted in large-diameter horizontal pipe, covered total flows of 0.19 to 1.89 m{sup 3}/s (3000 to 30000 gpm) and inlet void fractions up to 40%. A flow regime map, constructed using video images of the flow patterns and void fraction data, was compared with maps from the literature, with generally good agreement for interpretation of flow patterns. 5 refs.
