Liquid Entrainment—Axial Flow Visualization at 3,600 psig
Advanced science. Applied technology.
Efforts in multiphase flow characterization and modeling focus on investigating and characterizing the behavior and phase distribution of multiphase flow under a wide spectrum of operating conditions ranging from near atmospheric pressure and ambient temperatures in air/water systems, to more realistic conditions involving high pressures (e.g., 3,600 psi), high-viscosity, and hydrocarbon fluids.
This area also encompasses the development of correlations, mechanistic models, and the use of commercial one-dimensional multiphase flow modeling software, such as OLGA or FloCAD (Sinda/Fluint) and computational fluid dynamics in modeling multiphase flows in a variety of applications.
