Valve/Filter allowing through gas only, no liquid

I need to devise a way to ensure only NG passes through a pipe, and no condensates or other liquids. It is ok to shut down the pipeline if liquids would be detected. The dimensions involved are small ...

How to infer from the volume fraction function whether a flow is transient or steady?

Hello dear engineering community. I have a specific question about multiphase flows. I was wondering if anybody could help me with it, please. Assume, I have a one dimensional water-air flow. Air is ...

Finding flow rate contribution from difference in temperature

Currently I am working on a DTS(Distributed Temperature Sensor)data and PLT data and I need to figure out a relationship between temperature and fluid flow-rates in various locations (depths) of the ...

Modelling gas desorption from a still solution (e.g. a beer)

The common way to model or estimate gas (e.g. CO2) desorption rate from a liquid solution is by using an equation similar to this one $J_{CO_2} = -k_L a(H·C^G_{CO_2} - C^L_{CO_2})$ where $J_{CO_2}$ ...

Determination of solid bed fluidisation

How would one determine if a fluidised bed (with liquid flow) is determined to be a stable fluidised bed, which subsequently doesn't form a plug or bed at the top of a column (bounded by frits), when ...

How do the bubble oscillations in two-phase flows affect the dissipation rate of turbulent kinetic energy?

I am investigating the effects of bubble oscillations (calculated using the Rayleigh-Plesset equation for bubble dynamics) on the turbulence in two-phase flows. Since I am using cryogenic fluids, the ...

Estimating whether the flow through a valve or nozzle cavitates

My understanding is that cavitation occurs in the flow of a liquid when the static pressure drops below the vapor pressure, even intermittently. So even if the time-averaged static pressure (what you ...

Sizing a pressure safety valve for two-phase flow

I understand that valves in two-phase vapour / liquid were sometimes sized by considering the required vapour and liquid flow rates separately, and then adding the results together. But this is now ...
