Co-Current Stratified Gas-Liquid Flow in a Horizontal Pipe With Discharging Branches Conference Paper uri icon


  • Experiments were performed in an adiabatic horizontal pipe with co-current stratified gas-liquid flow and a single discharge oriented at either 0, 45, or 90 degrees from horizontal. The study used air and water as the two fluid phases, operating at 312 kPa. The test section was scaled down from a typical CANDU header-feeder bank and used a pipe and discharge diameter of 50.8 mm and 6.35 mm, respectively. The objectives of the study were to provide quantitative two-phase measurements of the mass flow rate and quality at the pipe inlet, outlet, and discharge branch.
