Two-phase flow in horizontal pipes

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A method is developed in this paper which calculates the two-phase flow friction factor at any state of the fluid in the pipe. The mixing-length theory was employed for the calculation of the Reynolds stresses in turbulent two-phase flow. The friction factors obtained this way are in good agreement with experimental data. It is clear that the choice of the parameter m, or the density distribution, is rather arbitrary. Careful experimentation is required to refine the analysis given in this study, and in particular to provide guidance in the proper selection of the parameter m.
