Predictions of a horizontal stratified pipe flow.
Numerical predictions of three dimensional temperatures and velocities of a horizontal stratified pipe flow are presented. This experiment is one of a series of flow tests conducted at Argonne National Laboratory. A new accurate and stable skew upwind scheme is employed in the finite difference solution of the energy equation. The skew upwind predictions are in excellent agreement with the experimental data as steady state conditions are approached at the up stream test subsection. Comparisons between the conventional upwind formulation provided a significant increase in the accuracy of temperature predictions. (A)
