Numerical calculation of flashing from long pipes using a two-field model

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A two-field model for two-phase flows, in which the vapor and liquid phases have different densities, velocities, and temperatures, has been used to calculate the flashing of water from long pipes. The IMF (Implicit Multifield) technique is used to numerically solve the transient equations that govern the dynamics of each phase. The flow physics is described with finite rate phase transitions, interfacial friction, heat transfer, pipe wall friction, and appropriate state equations. The results of the calculations are compared with measured histories of pressure, temperature, and void fraction. A parameter study indicates the relative sensitivity of the results to the ... continued below
