Methods for calculating the pressure gradient of a two-phase flow through small-diameter conduits
Khovalyg D.M., Aleksandr V. Baranenko
The behaviour of a two-phase flow in small-diameter conduits is discussed, and the methods for calculating the pressure gradient are reviewed. Experimental data have been compared with computing methods.
Keywords: heat exchanger, two-phase flow, coolant, pressure gradient.
