AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON TWO-PHASE FLOW AT DIFFERENT ORIENTATIONS Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 2015 by ASME. In the current study, an experimental study on two-phase flow at different orientations is carried out at the Fluids Laboratory, Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). Three different orientations are used. They are horizontal, vertical and slanted orientation respectively. The experimental unit consists of pipes that are three inches (DN 80) in diameter and are capable of producing many various regimes of gasliquid flows. The experimental unit has sensors to measure the pressure, temperature and volume flow at numerous locations. Experiments are conducted for two-phase flow (bubble and slug flow). The new experimental data can provide valuable insights on the viscous effects with many flow regimes, phase compositions and direction of flow. The results of this research provide valuable new experimental data on two-phase flow characteristics for many flow regimes that can improve the safety and efficiency of wellstream flows.
