the popularity of the books should be one of the incentives for potential contributors. The secret of the ants’ power lies in their collective The author has not found any technique that is more useful for this purpose than practicing the solving of problems and exercises. especially for family members or relatives and those students lacking funds. ”Army Ants: A Collective Intelligence. they now have an opportunity to put their notes to use for others. this method is expected to accelerate the creation of these high quality books.

For others the social part is as simple as a desire to reduce the price of college textbooks. the books on compressible flow and die casting became the most popular books in their respective area. but also students who happened to be doing their homework. If a contributor of a section in such a book can be easily identified. It is not just for experts to contribute.ex.” American Scientist. The student’s contributions can be done by adding a question and perhaps the solution. The social function can have at least two components. then that contributor will be the copyright holder of that specific section (even within question/answer sections). While one can be as creative as possible. there are always others who can see new aspects of or add to the material. Thus. The following example explains this point: The army ant is a kind of carnivorous ant that lives and hunts in the tropics. In these cases. the reason is the pure fun of writing and organizing educational material. For example. the undersigned believes that personal intentions are appropriate and are the author’s/organizer’s private affair. The answer varies from individual to individual. For some authors. The collective material is much richer than any single person can create by himself.. one also begins to better understand the material. 77:139. so can we in creating textbooks by this powerful The book’s contributor’s names could be written by their sections. Thus. Nigel R. These books are written in a similar manner to the open source software 4 see also in Franks. Why would someone volunteer to be an author or organizer of such a book? This is the first question the undersigned was asked. the collective power of their networking creates an extremely powerful intelligence to carry out this attack4 . One component is to come to know and socialize with many in the profession. It is hoped that because of the open nature of these books. One can be successful when one solves as many problems as possible. 1989 (see for information http://www.

process. Someone has to write the skeleton and hopefully others will add “flesh and skin.” In this process, chapters or sections can be added after the skeleton has been written. It is also hoped that others will contribute to the question and answer sections in the book. But more than that, other books contain data5 which can be typeset in A LTEX. These data (tables, graphs and etc.) can be redone by anyone who has the time to do it. Thus, the contributions to books can be done by many who are not experts. Additionally, contributions can be made from any part of the world by those who wish to translate the book. It is hoped that the books will be error-free. Nevertheless, some errors are possible and expected. Even if not complete, better discussions or better explanations are all welcome to these books. These books are intended to be “continuous” in the sense that there will be someone who will maintain and improve the books with time (the organizer(s)). These books should be considered more as a project than to fit the traditional definition of “plain” books. Thus, the traditional role of author will be replaced by an organizer who will be the one to compile the book. The organizer of the book in some instances will be the main author of the work, while in other cases only the gate keeper. This may merely be the person who decides what will go into the book and what will not (gate keeper). Unlike a regular book, these works will have a version number because they are alive and continuously evolving. In the last 5 years three textbooks have been constructed which are available for download. These books contain innovative ideas which make some chapters the best in the world. For example, the chapters on Fanno flow and Oblique shock contain many original ideas such as the full analytical solution to the oblique shock, many algorithms for calculating Fanno flow parameters which are not found in any other book. In addition, Potto has auxiliary materials such as the gas dynamics tables (the largest compressible flow tables collection in the world), Gas Dynamics Calculator (Potto-GDC), etc. The combined number downloads of these books is over half a million (December 2009) or in a rate of 20,000 copies a month. Potto books on compressible flow and fluid mechanics are used as the main textbook or as a reference book in several universities around the world. The books are used in more than 165 different countries around the world. Every month people from about 110 different countries download these books. The book on compressible flow is also used by “young engineers and scientists” in NASA according to Dr. Farassat, NASA Langley Research Center. The undersigned of this document intends to be the organizer/author/coordinator of the projects in the following areas:

NSY = Not Started Yet The meaning of the progress is as:
ˆ The Alpha Stage is when some of the chapters are already in a rough draft; ˆ in Beta Stage is when all or almost all of the chapters have been written and are at least in a draft stage; ˆ in Gamma Stage is when all the chapters are written and some of the chapters are in a mature form; and ˆ the Advanced Stage is when all of the basic material is written and all that is left are aspects that are active, advanced topics, and special cases.

The mature stage of a chapter is when all or nearly all the sections are in a mature stage and have a mature bibliography as well as numerous examples for every section. The mature stage of a section is when all of the topics in the section are written, and all of the examples and data (tables, figures, etc.) are already presented. While some terms are defined in a relatively clear fashion, other definitions give merely a hint on the status. But such a thing is hard to define and should be enough for this stage. The idea that a book can be created as a project has mushroomed from the open source software concept, but it has roots in the way science progresses. However, traditionally books have been improved by the same author(s), a process in which books



have a new version every a few years. There are book(s) that have continued after their author passed away, i.e., the Boundary Layer Theory originated6 by Hermann Schlichting but continues to this day. However, projects such as the Linux Documentation project demonstrated that books can be written as the cooperative effort of many individuals, many of whom volunteered to help. Writing a textbook is comprised of many aspects, which include the actual writing of the text, writing examples, creating diagrams and figures, and writing the A LTEX macros7 which will put the text into an attractive format. These chores can be done independently from each other and by more than one individual. Again, because of the open nature of this project, pieces of material and data can be used by different books.

6 Originally authored by Dr. Schlichting, who passed way some years ago. A new version is created every several years. 7 One can only expect that open source and readable format will be used for this project. But more A than that, only LTEX, and perhaps troff, have the ability to produce the quality that one expects for A these writings. The text processes, especially LTEX, are the only ones which have a cross platform ability to produce macros and a uniform feel and quality. Word processors, such as OpenOffice, Abiword, and Microsoft Word software, are not appropriate for these projects. Further, any text that is produced by Microsoft and kept in “Microsoft” format are against the spirit of this project In that they force spending money on Microsoft software.



Prologue For This Book

Version March 1, 2011
pages 400 size 3.5M
A look on the progress which occur in the two and half years since the last time this page has been changed, shows that the book scientific part almost tripled. Three new chapters were added included that dealing with integral analysis and one chapter on differential analysis. Pushka equation (equation describing the density variation in great depth for slightly compressible material) was added yet not included in any other textbook. While the chapter on the fluid static is the best in the world (according to many including this auther8 ), some material has to be expanded. The potto style file has improved and including figures inside examples. Beside the Pushka equation, the book contains material that was not published in other books. Recently, many heavy duty examples were enhanced and thus the book quality. The meaning heavy duty example refers here to generalized cases. For example, showing the instability of the upside cone versus dealing with upside cone with spesific angle.

When this author was an undergraduate student, he spend time to study the wave phenomenon at the interface of open channel flow. This issue is related to renewal energy of extracting energy from brine solution (think about the Dead Sea, so much energy). The common explanation to the wave existence was that there is always a disturbance which causes instability. This author was bothered by this explanation.
8 While this bragging is not appropiate in this kind of book it is to point the missing and aditional further improments needed.




Now, in this version, it was proven that this wavy interface is created due to the need to satisfy the continuous velocity and shear stress at the interface and not a disturbance. Potto project books are characterized by high quality which marked by presentation of the new developments and clear explanations. This explanation (on the wavy interface) demonstrates this characteristic of Potto project books. The introduction to multi–phase is another example to this quality. While it is a hard work to discover and develop and bring this information to the students, it is very satisfying for the author. The number of downloads of this book results from this quality. Even in this early development stage, number of downloads per month is about 5000 copies.

The topic of fluid mechanics is common to several disciplines: mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, and civil engineering. In fact, it is also related to disciplines like industrial engineering, and electrical engineering. While the emphasis is somewhat different in this book, the common material is presented and hopefully can be used by all. One can only admire the wonderful advances done by the previous geniuses who work in this field. In this book it is hoped to insert, what and when a certain model is suitable than other models. One of the difference in this book is the insertion of the introduction to multiphase flow. Clearly, multiphase is an advance topic. However, some minimal familiarity can be helpful for many engineers who have to deal with non pure single phase fluid. This book is the third book in the series of POTTO project books. POTTO project books are open content textbooks so everyone are welcome to joint in. The topic of fluid mechanics was chosen just to fill the introduction chapter to compressible flow. During the writing it became apparent that it should be a book in its own right. In writing the chapter on fluid statics, there was a realization that it is the best chapter written on this topic. It is hoped that the other chapters will be as good this one. This book is written in the spirit of my adviser and mentor E.R.G. Eckert. Eckert, aside from his research activity, wrote the book that brought a revolution in the education of the heat transfer. Up to Egret’s book, the study of heat transfer was without any dimensional analysis. He wrote his book because he realized that the dimensional analysis utilized by him and his adviser (for the post doc), Ernst Schmidt, and their colleagues, must be taught in engineering classes. His book met strong criticism in which some called to “burn” his book. Today, however, there is no known place in world that does not teach according to Eckert’s doctrine. It is assumed that the same kind of individual(s) who criticized Eckert’s work will criticize this work. Indeed, the previous book, on compressible flow, met its opposition. For example, anonymous Wikipedia user name EMBaero claimed that the material in the book is plagiarizing, he just doesn’t know from where and what. Maybe that was the reason that he felt that is okay to plagiarize the book on Wikipedia. These criticisms will not change the future or the success of the ideas in this work. As a wise person says “don’t tell me that it is

wrong, show me what is wrong”; this is the only reply. With all the above, it must be emphasized that this book is not expected to revolutionize the field but change some of the way things are taught. The book is organized into several chapters which, as a traditional textbook, deals with a basic introduction to the fluid properties and concepts (under construction). The second chapter deals with Thermodynamics. The third book chapter is a review of mechanics. The next topic is statics. When the Static Chapter was written, this author did not realize that so many new ideas will be inserted into this topic. As traditional texts in this field, ideal flow will be presented with the issues of added mass and added forces (under construction). The classic issue of turbulence (and stability) will be presented. An introduction to multi–phase flow, not a traditional topic, will be presented next (again under construction). The next two chapters will deals with open channel flow and gas dynamics. At this stage, dimensional analysis will be present (again under construction).



How This Book Was Written

This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book. After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned chapters. In writing this book, it was assumed that introductory book on fluid mechanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the material presentation. There are numerous books on fluid mechanics but none of which is open content. The approach adapted in this book is practical, and more hands–on approach. This statement really meant that the book is intent to be used by students to solve their exams and also used by practitioners when they search for solutions for practical problems. So, issue of proofs so and so are here only either to explain a point or have a solution of exams. Otherwise, this book avoids this kind of issues. The structure of Hansen, Streeter and Wylie, and Shames books were adapted and used as a scaffolding for this book. This author was influenced by Streeter and Wylie book which was his undergrad textbooks. The chapters are not written in order. The first 4 chapters were written first because they were supposed to be modified and used as fluid mechanics introduction in “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow.” Later, multi–phase flow chapter was written. The presentation of some of the chapters is slightly different from other books because the usability of the computers. The book does not provide the old style graphical solution methods yet provides the graphical explanation of things. Of course, this book was written on Linux (Micro$oftLess book). This book was written using the vim editor for editing (sorry never was able to be comfortable with emacs). The graphics were done by TGIF, the best graphic program that this author experienced so far. The figures were done by gle. The spell checking was done by ispell, and hope to find a way to use gaspell, a program that currently cannot be used on new Linux systems. The figure in cover page was created by Genick Bar-Meir, and is copyleft by him.

and it is referred to the direction of the area. These programs in many cases can capture all the appropriate parameters and adequately provide a reasonable description of the physics. Area of three–dimensional object has no single direction. these kinds of areas should be addressed infinitesimally and locally. The unit used to measure is [N]. EKK. The fluid is mainly divided into two categories: liquids and gases. under certain limits. The traditional quantity. Hence. if the change of pressure is significantly less than that. The gas fills the volume and liquid cannot. the change of water pressure by 1000% only change the volume by less than 1 percent. It is evident from this discussion that when a liquid is at rest. these programs are as good as the input provided. which is force per area has a new meaning. the pressure will not affect the volume. sharp even though in reality this difference isn’t sharp. no shear stress is applied. In gaseous phase. However. It is also said that liquid cannot return to their original state after the deformation. So. It must be remember that force is a vector. This differentiation leads to three groups of materials: solids and liquids. The main difference between the liquids and gases state is that gas will occupy the whole volume while liquids has an almost fix volume. The study of this kind of material called rheology and it will (almost) not be discussed in this book. For example. This test creates a new material group that shows dual behaviors. Thus.3 Kinds of Fluids Some differentiate fluid from solid by the reaction to shear stress. The second quantity discussed here is the area. e. The area is measured in [m2 ]. But below the critical point. assuming turbulent flow for still flow simply provides erroneous results (see for example. This quantity was discussed in physics class but here it has an additional meaning. there are many other cases that numerical analysis cannot provide any meaningful result (trends). no weather prediction program can produce good engineering quality results (where the snow will fall within 50 kilometers accuracy. any change in pressure directly affects the volume. This difference can be. it behaves like solid and under others it behaves like liquid (see Figure 1. In this book. Gas has no free interface/surface (since it does fill the entire volume). For example. This is a result of division of a vector by a vector and it is referred to as tensor. 1.

There are several quantities that have to be addressed in this discussion. so at this stage the tensor will have to be broken . the emphasis is on the physics.

INTRODUCTION TO FLUID MECHANICS primarily dependent on the magnitude of these cohesive forces. the pressure has minor effect on the viscosity.5). 1. On the liquid side below the critical point. There is a large class of materials which shows a non-linear relationship with velocity for any shear stress.2 Non–Newtonian Fluids In equation (1. The shear stress as a function relationship is referred to as power relationship of the shear rate. Not all the materials obey this relationship. The lines in the above diagrams are only to show constant pressure lines. . There is no such a thing of viscosity at 30% liquid. Oils have the greatest increase of viscosity with pressure which is a good thing for many engineering purposes. Since these forces decrease rapidly with increases of temperature. -1. both materials are only a function of the temperature.6 demonstrates that viscosity increases slightly with pressure.

Capilary Height Figure 1.24 exhibits the height as a function of the radius of the tube. The height based on equation (1.71) is shown in Figure 1.23 as blue line. The actual height is shown in the red line. Equation (1.71) provides reasonable results only in a certain range. For a small tube radius, equation (1.59) proved better results because the curve approaches hemispherical sphere (small gravity effect). For large radii equation (1.59) approaches the strait line (the liquid line) Fig. -1.24. The raising height as a strong gravity effect. On the other hand, for exfunction of the radius. tremely small radii equation (1.71) indicates that the high height which indicates a negative pressure. The liquid at a certain pressure will be vaporized and will breakdown the model upon this equation was constructed. Furthermore, the small scale indicates that the simplistic and continuous approach is not appropriate and a different model is needed. The conclusion of this discussion are shown in Figure 1.23. The actual dimension for many liquids (even water) is about 1-5 [mm]. The discussion above was referred to “wetting” contact angle. The depression of the liquid occurs in a “negative” contact angle similarly to “wetting.” The depression height, h is similar to equation (1.71) with a minus sign. However, the gravity is working against the surface tension and reducing the range and quality of the predictions of equation (1.71). The measurements of the height of distilled water and mercury are presented in Figure 1.24. The experimental results of these materials are with agreement with the discussion above. The surface tension of a selected material is given in Table 1.7. In conclusion, the surface tension issue is important only in case where the radius is very small and gravity is negligible. The surface tension depends on the two materials or mediums that it separates.

CHAPTER 2 Review of Thermodynamics
In this chapter, a review of several definitions of common thermodynamics terms is presented. This introduction is provided to bring the student back to current place with the material.

2.1 Basic Definitions
The following basic definitions are common to thermodynamics and will be used in this book. Work In mechanics, the work was defined as mechanical work = F•d = P dV (2.1)

This definition can be expanded to include two issues. The first issue that must be addressed, that work done on the surroundings by the system boundaries similarly is positive. Two, there is a transfer of energy so that its effect can cause work. It must be noted that electrical current is a work while heat transfer isn’t. System This term will be used in this book and it is defined as a continuous (at least partially) fixed quantity of matter. The dimensions of this material can be changed. In this definition, it is assumed that the system speed is significantly lower than that of the speed of light. So, the mass can be assumed constant even though the true conservation law applied to the combination of mass energy (see Einstein’s law). In fact for almost all engineering purpose this law is reduced to two separate laws of mass conservation and energy conservation.




Our system can receive energy, work, etc as long the mass remain constant the definition is not broken. Thermodynamics First Law This law refers to conservation of energy in a non accelerating system. Since all the systems can be calculated in a non accelerating systems, the conservation is applied to all systems. The statement describing the law is the following. Q12 − W12 = E2 − E1 (2.2)

The system energy is a state property. From the first law it directly implies that for process without heat transfer (adiabatic process) the following is true W12 = E1 − E2 (2.3)

Interesting results of equation (2.3) is that the way the work is done and/or intermediate states are irrelevant to final results. There are several definitions/separations of the kind of works and they include kinetic energy, potential energy (gravity), chemical potential, and electrical energy, etc. The internal energy is the energy that depends on the other properties of the system. For example for pure/homogeneous and simple gases it depends on two properties like temperature and pressure. The internal energy is denoted in this book as EU and it will be treated as a state property. The potential energy of the system is depended on the body force. A common body force is the gravity. For such body force, the potential energy is mgz where g is the gravity force (acceleration), m is the mass and the z is the vertical height from a datum. The kinetic energy is K.E. = mU 2 2 (2.4)

Thus the energy equation can be written as Total Energy Equation mU1 mU2 2 + mgz1 + EU 1 + Q = + mgz2 + EU 2 + W 2 2 For the unit mass of the system equation (2.5) is transformed into Spesific Energy Equation U1 2 U2 2 + gz1 + Eu 1 + q = + gz2 + Eu 2 + w 2 2 (2.6)


where q is the energy per unit mass and w is the work per unit mass. The “new” internal energy, Eu , is the internal energy per unit mass.



Since the above equations are true between arbitrary points, choosing any point in time will make it correct. Thus differentiating the energy equation with respect to time yields the rate of change energy equation. The rate of change of the energy transfer is DQ ˙ =Q Dt (2.7)

In the same manner, the work change rate transfered through the boundaries of the system is DW ˙ =W Dt Since the system is with a fixed mass, the rate energy equation is DU D Bf z D EU ˙ ˙ + mU +m Q−W = Dt Dt Dt (2.9) (2.8)

For the case were the body force, Bf , is constant with time like in the case of gravity equation (2.9) reduced to Time Dependent Energy Equation D EU DU Dz ˙ ˙ Q−W = + mU + mg Dt Dt Dt (2.10)

The time derivative operator, D/Dt is used instead of the common notation because it referred to system property derivative. Thermodynamics Second Law There are several definitions of the second law. No matter which definition is used to describe the second law it will end in a mathematical form. The most common mathematical form is Clausius inequality which state that δQ ≥0 T (2.11)

The integration symbol with the circle represent integral of cycle (therefor circle) in with system return to the same condition. If there is no lost, it is referred as a reversible process and the inequality change to equality. δQ =0 T (2.12)

The last integral can go though several states. These states are independent of the path the system goes through. Hence, the integral is independent of the path. This observation leads to the definition of entropy and designated as S and the derivative of entropy is ds ≡ δQ T rev (2.13)



Performing integration between two states results in

S2 − S1 =

δQ = T rev




One of the conclusions that can be drawn from this analysis is for reversible and adiabatic process dS = 0. Thus, the process in which it is reversible and adiabatic, the entropy remains constant and referred to as isentropic process. It can be noted that there is a possibility that a process can be irreversible and the right amount of heat transfer to have zero change entropy change. Thus, the reverse conclusion that zero change of entropy leads to reversible process, isn’t correct. For reversible process equation (2.12) can be written as δQ = T dS and the work that the system is doing on the surroundings is δW = P dV Substituting equations (2.15) (2.16) into (2.10) results in T dS = d EU + P dV (2.17) (2.16) (2.15)

Even though the derivation of the above equations were done assuming that there is no change of kinetic or potential energy, it still remail valid for all situations. Furthermore, it can be shown that it is valid for reversible and irreversible processes. Enthalpy It is a common practice to define a new property, which is the combination of already defined properties, the enthalpy of the system. H = EU + P V The specific enthalpy is enthalpy per unit mass and denoted as, h. Or in a differential form as dH = dEU + dP V + P dV Combining equations (2.18) the (2.17) yields (one form of) Gibbs Equation T dS = dH − V dP (2.20) (2.19) (2.18)

For isentropic process, equation (2.17) is reduced to dH = V dP . The equation (2.17) in mass unit is dP T ds = du + P dv = dh − (2.21) ρ

2.1. BASIC DEFINITIONS when the density enters through the relationship of ρ = 1/v.


Specific Heats The change of internal energy and enthalpy requires new definitions. The first change of the internal energy and it is defined as the following Spesific Volume Heat Cv ≡ ∂Eu ∂T (2.22)

And since the change of the enthalpy involve some kind of work is defined as Spesific Pressure Heat Cp ≡ ∂h ∂T (2.23)

The ratio between the specific pressure heat and the specific volume heat is called the ratio of the specific heat and it is denoted as, k. Spesific Heats Ratio Cp k≡ Cv


For solid, the ratio of the specific heats is almost 1 and therefore the difference between them is almost zero. Commonly the difference for solid is ignored and both are assumed to be the same and therefore referred as C. This approximation less strong for liquid but not by that much and in most cases it applied to the calculations. The ratio the specific heat of gases is larger than one. Equation of state Equation of state is a relation between state variables. Normally the relationship of temperature, pressure, and specific volume define the equation of state for gases. The simplest equation of state referred to as ideal gas. and it is defined as P = ρRT (2.25)

Application of Avogadro’s law, that ”all gases at the same pressures and temperatures have the same number of molecules per unit of volume,” allows the calculation of a “universal gas constant.” This constant to match the standard units results in ¯ R = 8.3145 kj kmol K (2.26)

1 Actual Center of Mass In many engineering problems.Fig. etc. The center of mass doesn’t depend on the coordinate system and on the way it is calculated. if a body will be held by one point it will be enough to hold the body in the direction of the center of mass. then a moment in additional to force is required (to prevent the body for rotating).

It is convenient to use the Cartesian system to explain this concept. This concept is derived from the fact that a body has a center of mass/gravity which interacts with other bodies and that this force acts on the center (equivalent force). . fashion the center of mass can be defined in the other directions as following xi of Center Mass 1 xi = ¯ xi ρ(xi )dV m V (3. ρ(xi ) is the line density as function of xi . x. the dV element has finite dimendV sions in y–z plane and infinitesimal dimension in x direction see Figure 3.2 Center of Mass The center of mass is divided into two sections.

Suppose that h for some reason. the pressure process is about thousands times faster than the thermal process. The reason that the free expansion is chosen to explain the process that the slab undergoes when it moves from layer h to layer h + dh is because it is the simplest. Two adjoin layers for stability analysis. The first case is referred to as the stable condition and the second case referred to as the unstable condition. the slab is in equilibrium with its surroundings before the movement (not necessarily stable). The two processes that occurred here are thermal and the change of pressure (at the speed of sound). That is. The two forces that act on the slab are the gravity force and the surroundings pressure (buoyant forces).25).

For the case of b < 3 a the calculation of moment of inertia are similar to the previous case. the stability analysis must take into account the changes of the displaced liquids of the two liquid layers. all fluids have density varied in some degree. The moment of inertia is calculated around this point (note the body is “ended” at end of the upper body). the upper part of the body is above the liquid or part of the body is submerged under the water. Generally. the moment to return the body is larger than actually was calculated and the bodies tend to be more stable (also for other reasons). this density change helps to increase the stability of the floating bodies. there are situations where the body has a “strange” ∆F M δβ and/or un-symmetrical body.

Non–deformable control volume is a control volume which is fixed in space relatively to an one coordinate system. energy. The difference between the system and the control volume is shown in Figure 5. The control volume should be chosen so that the analysis should be simple and dealt with as less as possible issues which are not in question.

A discussion about the “regular” solution is present and a brief discussion about limitations when the solution is applicable. This analysis leads to partial differential equations which are referred to as the Navier-Stokes equations. As usual Simon-Denis Poisson independently. which leads to a different approach of differential analysis. First these equations were derived by Claude–Louis– Marie Navier as it is known in 1827. 231 . These equations are named after Claude– Louis Navier–Marie and George Gabriel Stokes. Like many equations they were independently derived by several people. derived these equations in 1831 for the same arguments as Navier. However even for the “regular” solution the mathematics is very complex. as he done to many other equations or conditions. with a presentation of the “non–regular” solutions will be presented with the associated issues of stability. the emphasis is on infinitesimal scale and thus the analysis provides better accuracy1 .

The concepts 1 Which can be view as complementary analysis to the integral analysis. the solution is not unique.1 Introduction The integral analysis has a limited accuracy. The differential analysis allows the flow field investigation in greater detail. The foundations for their arguments or motivations are based on a molecular view of how stresses are exerted between fluid layers. Barr´ de e Saint Venant (1843) and George Gabriel Stokes (1845) derived these equation based on the relationship between stress and rate–of–strain (this approach is presented in this book). Navier-Stokes equations are non–linear and there are more than one possible solution in many cases (if not most cases) e.g. One of the approaches is to reduce the equations by eliminating the viscosity effects. The equations without the viscosity effects are referred to as the ideal flow equations (Euler Equations) which will be discussed in the next chapter.CHAPTER 8 Differential Analysis 8.

A common velocity condition is that the liquid has the same value as the solid interface velocity.13. or in more general terms as the shear stress conditions (mostly at the interface). For this discussion. pressure. Mathematically the “no slip” condition is x written as f (x) y U t · (U f luid − U boundary ) = 0 b Fig. The solid surface is rough thus the liquid participles (or molecules) are slowed to be at the solid surface velocity.6 Boundary Conditions and Driving Forces 8. pressure (at the interface direction) and shear stress (perpendicular to the area). The slip condition (as oppose to “no slip” condition) exist in situations where the scale is very small and the velocity is relatively very small. The difference between the small scale and the large scale is that the slip can be neglected in the large scale while the slip cannot be neglected in the small scale. These conditions can be categorized by the velocity.114) + ρgz 8.115) is given in a vector form.115) b. This boundary condition was experimentally observed under many conditions yet it is not universal true. The slip condition canflow not be ignored in some regions. this condition is referred as the “no slip” condition. While this condition (8. the shear tensor will be separated into two categories. These conditions described physical situations that are believed or should exist or approximated. it is more common to write this condition as a given velocity at a certain point such as U( ) = U (8. t where n is referred to the area direction (perpendicular to the area see Figure 8.

this condition cannot be tolerated since infinite velocity (acceleration) is impossible. The jump in the density (between the two fluids) creates a surface tension which offset the jump in the shear stress. the relative perpendicular velocity at the interface must be zero. In this book. the transition is idealized an almost jump (a few molecules thickness). is extremely hard to handle because the location isn’t given but the derivative given on unknown location. While a jump in density does not break any physical laws (at least those present in the solution). There are situations where the transition should be analyzed as a continuous transition between two phases. The location of r the (free) moving boundary can be given as f (r .115) as U t · (U f luid − U boundary ) = f (Q. Furthermore. In these cases the assumptions are that the transition occurs in a sharp line. sometime. scale. a requirement on the acceleration (velocity) can be given in unknown position. The perpendicular relative velocity at the surface must be zero and therefore Df =0 Dt r on the surface f (r . t) = 0 (8. In other cases. the jump in a shear stress (without a jump in density) does break a physical law.8. The condition becomes as 0= ∂f ∂f ∂f + Ux + Uy ∂t ∂x ∂y (8. The condition (8. etc) (8. In reality the interface between these two fluids is not a sharp transition but only approximation (see for the surface theory). The ”slip” condition is written in similar fashion to equation (8. The free surface is a special case of moving surfaces where the surface between two distinct fluids. this condition will not be discussed (at least not plane to be written). Off course. the “no slip” condition is applicable to the ideal fluid (“inviscid flows”) because this kind of flow normally deals with large scales.117) As oppose to a given velocity at particular point. and the density has a jump while the shear stress are continuous (in some cases continuously approach zero value).

A jump in the shear stress creates infinite force on the adjoin thin layer.118) This condition is called the kinematic boundary condition. To make sure that all the material is accounted for in the control volume (does not cross the free surface).120) .119) The solution of this condition. y). there are situations where the fluid (above one of the sides) should be considered as weightless material. For example. The jump in shear stress can appear when the density has a jump in density. the free surface in the two dimensional case is represented as f (t.6. This condition is expressed mathematically by equating the shear stress difference to the forces results due to the surface tension.

The gravity is a common body force which is considered in many fluid mechanics problems. For example. In this book. the contribution due to the curvature is zero in the direction of the flow (see Figure 8. The outer diameter is depends on the surT ∂r ∂h face tension (the larger surface tension the smaller the liquid diameter).15. Consider. the surface tension gradient remains. under the assumption presented here.14. In fluid (mostly liquid) shear stress pulling side (surface) will have limited effect and yet sometime is significant and more rarely dominate. -8. The fluid surrounds the rode temperature and flows upwards. pulling the side will pull all the material. In that case. The liquid does not move up due the gravity (actually it is against the gravity) but because the surface tension. The gravity can be considered as a constant force in most cases (see for dimensional analysis for the reasons).

In Buckingham’s technique only the 1 The history of dimensional analysis is complex. The approach or the technique used in these books is referred to as Buckingham–π–theory. The Buckingham–π goes further and no equations are solved and even no knowledge about these equations is required. The π–theory was coined by Buckingham. there is another technique which is referred to in the literature as the Nusselt’s method. this author observed that Nusselt’s technique is much more effective as it will demonstrated later.1 Introductory Remarks Dimensional analysis refers to techniques dealing with units or conversion to a unitless system. Possible topics that dimensional analysis deals with are consistency of the units. In this chapter. Furthermore. The key in these techniques lays in the fact of consistency of the dimensions of any possible governing equation(s) and the fact that some dimensions are reoccurring. Several scientists used this concept before Buckingham and Nusselt (see below history section). in many advance fluid mechanics classes Nusselt’s technique is used and Buckingham’s technique is abandoned.

Some attribute it to Newton (1686) who coined the phrase of “great Principle of Similitude. When no governing equations are found. Rayleigh probably was the first one who used dimensional analysis (1872) to obtain . It can be argued that these situations really do not exist in the Thermo–Fluid field. The advantage of the Nusselt’s technique are: a) compact presentation. and the relative relationship of these parameters. more information is put into the problem and thus a better understanding on the dimensionless parameters is extracted. This author is aware of only a single class of cases were Buckingham’s methods is useful and or can solve the problem namely the pendulum class problem (and similar). In fact. In the Buckingham’s approach it merely suggests the number of dimensional parameters based on a guess of all parameters affecting the problem. c) easier to extent the solution to more general situations. there are fields in thermo–fluid where dimensional analysis. is recognized as useless.

In very complex problems both techniques suffer from in inability to provide a significant information on the effective parameters such multi-phase flow etc. The advantage or disadvantage of these similar methods depend on the point of view.

Geometric Similarity One of the logical part of dimensional analysis is how the experiences should be similar to actual body they are supposed to represent.

Here this term refers to similarity of the forces. there is no way achieve low Reynolds number with thin film flow. the solution is to sacrifice the geometric similarity to minimize the undesirable effects. that this requires that similarity in the accelerations and masses between the model and prototype. Dynamics Similarity The dynamic similarity has many confusing and conflicting definitions in the literature. to discuss the situations there the model and prototype are similar but the velocities are different by a different scaling factor.9) where 1 and 2 are the typical dimensions in two different directions and subscript p refers to the prototype and m to the model. the model faces inability to match two or more dimensionless parameters.10) p It can be noticed that t ∼ /U thus equation (9. The geometrical similarity aside the shapes and counters of the object it also can requires surface roughness and erosion of surfaces of mobile surfaces or sedimentation of particles surface tensions. Kinematic Similarity The perfect kinetics similarity is obtained when there are geometrical similarity and the motions of the fluid above the objects are the same. It was shown that the solution is a function of several typical dimensionless parameters. then the desire to achieve a motion “picture” which is characterized by ratios of corresponding velocities and accelerations is the same throughout the actual flow field. The solution for the model and the prototype are the same. If this similarity is not possible. Under the same argument the volumes change with the cubes of lengths. based on Newton’s second law. river modeling requires to distort vertical scales to eliminate the influence of surface tension or bed roughness or sedimentation. since both cases have the same Froude number.

this class will be the only opportunity to be exposed to this topic. As result. Additionally. his analysis is in the twilight zone not in the real world. In the past. books on multiphase flow were written more as a literature review or heavy on the mathematics. 10. it is believed that the interactions/calculations requires a full year class and hence. Here. 331 . For many engineers. This book attempts to describe these issues as a fundamentals of physical aspects and less as a literature review.2 History The study of multi–phase flow started for practical purposes after World War II. working for the government who analyzed filing cavity with liquid metal (aluminum). only the trends and simple calculations are described. in many books the representations is by writing the whole set governing equations.1 Introduction Traditionally.there are two possibilities (1) the fluids/materials are flowing in well homogeneous mixed (where the main problem 1 An example. the topic of multi–phase flow is ignored in an introductory class on fluid mechanics. In fact. For simple models.CHAPTER 10 Multi–Phase Flow 10. The knowledge in this topic without any doubts. The author believes that the trends and effects of multiphase flow could and should be introduced and considered by engineers. there was a Ph. Initially the models were using simple assumptions. the nature of multiphase flow requires solving many equations. This chapter provides information that is more or less in consensus2 . Thus. is required for many engineering problems. 2 Or when the scientific principles simply dictate. It is recognized that multiphase flow is still evolving.D. who did not consider the flow as two–phase flow and ignoring the air. Calculations of many kinds of flow deals with more than one phase or material flow1 . there is not a consensus to the exact map of many flow regimes.

Which leads to the concept of flow regime maps. and importance to real world. MULTI–PHASE FLOW to find the viscosity). When it became apparent that specific models were needed for different situations. the concept of flow regimes. This chapter will provide: a category of combination of phases. For example. Taitle–Duckler’s map is not applicable for microgravity. 10. However. will know and understand the trends. and more importantly. flow parameters effects on the flow regimes. multi–phase flow parameters definitions. and calculation of pressure drop of simple homogeneous model. Taitle and Duckler suggested a map based on five non-dimensional groups which are considered as the most useful today. It is an attempt to explain and convince all the readers that the multi–phase flow must be included in introductory class on fluid mechanics3 . phase change or transfer processes during flow. The flow patterns or regimes were not considered. this chapter will explain the core concepts of the multiphase flow and their relationship. Hence. However. Under this assumption the total is not linear and experimental correlation was made. this chapter will not provide a discussion of transient problems.332 CHAPTER 10. partial discussion on speed of sound of different regimes. double choking phenomenon (hopefully). Also the researchers looked at the situation when the different regimes are applicable. a description of what to expect in this chapter is provided. (2) the fluids/materials are flowing separately where the actual total loss pressure can be correlated based on the separate pressure loss of each of the material. This was suggested by Lockhart and Martinelli who use a model where the flow of the two fluids are independent of each other. researchers started to look for different flow regimes and provided different models. Researchers that followed Lockhart and Martinelli looked for a different map for different combination of phases. It turned out this idea provides a good crude results in some cases. Taitle and Duckler’s map is not universal and it is only applied to certain liquid–gas conditions. They postulate that there is a relationship between the pressure loss of a single phase and combine phases pressure loss as a function of the pressure loss of the other phase. If the pressure loss was linear then the total loss will be the summation of the two pressure losses (of the lighter liquid (gas) and the heavy liquid). and actual calculation of pressure of the different regimes. This chapter will introduce these concepts so that the engineer not only be able to understand a conversation on multi-phase but also.

Different fields of multi phase flow.10. there are situations when air flow has to be considered as multiphase flow and this effect has to be taken into account.” 4 Different concentration of oxygen as a function of the height. Hence. the homogeneous assumption is enough and suitable. For example. consider air flow that was discussed and presented earlier as a single phase flow. This fact is due to the shear number of the downloaded Potto books. many proprieties of air are calculated as if the air is made of well mixed gases of Nitrogen and Oxygen. In our calculation. The number of the downloads of the book on Fundamental of compressible flow has exceed more than 100. The results of the calculations of a mixture do not change much if it is assumed that the air flow as stratified flow 4 of many concentration layers (thus. The discussion in the previous chapters is only as approximation when multiphase can be “reduced” into a single phase flow. However. It also provides an opportunity to bring the latest advances in the fields since this author does not need to “sell” the book to a publisher or convince a “committee. this assumption will not be appropriate when the air is stratified because of large body forces.4 Kind of Multi-Phase Flow All the flows are a form of multiphase flow. In fact. The creation 3 This author feels that he is in an unique position to influence many in the field of fluid mechanics. While the difference of the concentration between the top to button is insignificant. Adopting this assumption might lead to a larger error. Air is not a pure material but a mixture of many gases. many layers (infinite) of different materials). Practically for many cases. it is assumed that air is made of only gases.4. 10.

The body inhales solid particle with breathing air. The engineering accuracy is enough to totally ignore it.5 Classification of Liquid-Liquid Flow Regimes The general discussion on liquid–liquid will be provided and the gas–liquid flow will be discussed as a special case. they can be solid–liquid. This category should include any distinction of phase/material. is only an extreme case of liquid-gas flow and is a sub category of the multiphase flow. mud flow etc. 1887). The “average” viscosity is meaningless since in many cases the water follows around the oil. rain. Jr. fluidized bed. For example. the density is a strong function of the temperature and pressure. The water flow is the source of the friction. This flow is used by engineers to reduce the cost of moving crude oil through a long pipes system. This flow also appears in any industrial process that are involved in solidification (for example die casting) and in moving solid particles. 360070 issued to George Westinghouse. paint spray. solid propellant rocket. Many natural phenomenon are multiphase flow. March 29. Open Channel flow is. Since there are three phases. The multiphase can be found in nature. The multiphase is an important part of many processes. In the past. and river flow. In a four (4) miles long train. there are situations where cleanness of the air can affect the flow. In almost all situations. This notion eliminates many other flow categories that can and should be included in multiphase flow.. For the gas. When the . hydraulic with two or more kind of liquids. the breaks in long trains were activated by reduction of the compressed line (a patent no. the flow of oil and water in one pipe is a multiphase flow. it is more common to categorize the flow by the distinct phases that flow in the tube. there are two possibilities for two different materials to flow (it is also correct for solid–liquid and any other combination). Generally. Many industrial process also include liquid-liquid such as painting. although important. Yet. For example. the cleanness of the air or the fact that air is a mixture is ignored. for an example.334 CHAPTER 10. in nature can be blood flow. The category of liquid–gas should be really viewed as the extreme case of liquid-liquid where the density ratio is extremely large. Gas–solid can be found in sand storms. plasma and river flow with live creatures (small organisms to large fish) flow of ice berg. The liquid–solid. MULTI–PHASE FLOW of clean room is a proof that air contains small particles. Many industries are involved with this flow category such as dust collection. for example. a 10% change of the speed of sound due to dust particles in air could reduce the stopping time by 2 seconds (50 meter difference in stopping) and can cause an accident. sand and grain (which are “solids”) flow with rocks and is referred to solid–solid flow. and avalanches. Liquid–liquid flow is probably the most common flow in the nature. The same can be said for gas–gas flow. solid–gas. However. and industries. Thus. the cleanness of air can reduce the speed of sound. One way to categorize the multiphase is by the materials flows. spray casting. living bodies (bio–fluids). There are many more categories. Flow of air is actually the flow of several light liquids (gases). liquid–gas and solid–liquid–gas flow. The materials can flow in the same direction and it is referred as co–current flow. the breaks would started to work after about 20 seconds in the last wagon. 10.

The flow in inclined angle (that not covered by the word “near”) exhibits flow regimes not much different from the other two. Light Liquid and non open channel flow).5. plug flow. Generally. and annular flow. 10. For example. When the flow rate of the lighter liquid is almost zero.1 Horizontal Flow The typical regimes for horizontal flow are stratified flow (open channel flow. 10. The other characteristic that is different between the gas flow and the liquid flow is the variation of the density. horizontal. This kind of flow regime is referred to as horizontal flow. There is no exact meaning to the word “near vertical” or “near horizontal” and there is no consensus on the limiting angles (not to mention to have limits as a function with any parameter that determine the limiting angle). Yet.5.2. 5 With the exception of the extremely smaller diameter where Rayleigh–Taylor instability is an important issue. the flow of gas–liquid can have several flow regimes in one situation while the flow of liquid–liquid will (probably) have only one flow regime. The vertical configuration has two cases. and what ever between them. The geometries (even the boundaries) of open channel flow are very diverse. a reduction of the pressure by half will double the gas volumetric flow rate while the change in the liquid is negligible.1 Co–Current Flow In Co–Current flow. For example. The channel flow will be discussed in a greater detail in Open Channel Flow chapter. In general. . For low velocity (low flow rate) of the two liquids. 5 top as depicted in Figure 10. The main difference between the liquid–liquid flow to gas-liquid flow is that gas density is extremely lighter than the liquid density. dispersed Heavy Liquid bubble flow. the counter–current flow must have special configurations of long length of flow. The flow regimes are referred to the arrangement of the fluids. Stratified flow in horizontal tubes bottom and lighter liquid flows on the when the liquids flow is very slow.10. the flow is referred to as open channel flow. the counter–current flow has a limited length window of possibility in a vertical flow in conduits with the exception of magnetohydrodynamics. This definition (open channel flow) continues for small amount of lighter liquid as long as the heavier flow can be calculated as open channel flow (ignoring the lighter liquid). Additionally. the limits between the flow regimes are considerably different. Thus. It is common to differentiate between the vertical (and near vertical) and horizontal (and near horizontal). This issue of incline flow will not be covered in this chapter. water and air flow as oppose to water and oil flow. it is referred as counter–current. Open channel flow appears in many nature (river) as well in industrial process such as the die casting process where liquid metal is injected into a cylinder (tube) shape. up or down. the heavy liquid flows on the Fig.

Fig. then the wave cannot reach to the crown and the shape is deformed to the point that all the heavier liquid is around the periphery. As the lighter liquid velocity increases two things can happen (1) wave size increase and (2) the shape of cross section continue to deform. Thus. Further increase of the lighter liquid flow rate move the flow regime into annular flow. choking occurs relatively Fig. For liquid which the density is a strong and primary function of the pressure. Choking occurs in compressible Light Liquid flow when the flow rate is above a certain point.4). and other physical properties of the fluids but also on the material of the conduit. . the possibility to go through slug flow regime depends on if there is enough liquid flow rate. Thus. the friction between the phases increase. when the lighter liquid flow increases. This friction is one of the cause for the instability which manifested itself as waves and changing the surface from straight line to a different configuration (see Figure 10. The superficial velocity is referred to as the velocity that any phase will have if the other phase was not exist. all the two phase flow are categorized by wavy flow which will proven later.4. Kind of Stratified flow in There are two paths that can occur on the heavier horizontal tubes. thus it is arbitrary definition. the flow that starts the liquids flow is faster. All liquids are compressible Heavy Liquid to some degree.3. The wave shape is created to keep the gas and the liquid velocity equal and at the same time to have shear stress to be balance by surface tension. MULTI–PHASE FLOW As the lighter liquid (or the gas phase) flow rate increases (superficial velocity). In fact. This kind of flow regime is referred to as annular flow. The configuration of the cross section not only depend on the surface tension. the flow pattern is referred to as slug flow or plug flow. The plugs are flowing in a succession (see Figure 10. Plug flow in horizontal tubes when closer/sooner. all the flow is wavy. the heavier liquid wave reaches to the crown of the pipe. These plugs are separated by large “chunks” that almost fill the entire tube. The slug flow cannot be assumed to be as homogeneous flow nor it can exhibit some average viscosity. If the heavier flow rate is small. If the heavier liquid flow rate is larger6 than the distance. as a stratified flow will turned into a slug flow or stratified wavy7 flow after a certain distance depends on the heavy flow rate (if 6 The 7 Well. -10. liquid level is higher. for the wave to reach the conduit crown is smaller. Light Liquid Light Liquid Some referred to this regime as wavy stratified flow Heavy Liquid Heavy Liquid but this definition is not accepted by all as a category by itself. At some point. Plug flow is characterized by regions of lighter liquid filled with drops of the heavier liquid with Plug (or Slug) of the heavier liquid (with bubble of the lighter liquid).3). The pressure drop of this kind of regime is significantly larger than the stratified flow. -10. At this stage. The “average” viscosity depends on the flow and thus making it as insignificant way to do the calculations. liquid flow rate.336 CHAPTER 10.

This phenomenon is refer to as hysteresis.5. After a certain distance. This maximum is known as double choking phenomenon.5. For example.” Dispersed Bubble Liquid Superficial Velocity Elongated Bubble Slug Flow Annular Flow Stratified Flow Wavy Stratified Open Channel Flow Gas Superficial Velocity Fig. The choking can occur before the annular flow regime is obtained depending on the velocity and compressibility of the lighter liquid. the return path is not move the exact same way. weak to strong surface tension effects (air/water in “normal” gravity). 10. However. The reverse way is referred to the process where the starting point is high flow rate and the flow rate is decreasing. The angle decreases with the length of the pipe. the “near” angle depends on the length of the pipe. The buoyancy . -10. Modified Mandhane map for flow regime in horizontal tubes. the flow become annular or the flow will choke. There is even a possibility to return on different flow regime.1.g.5. this map is only characteristics of the “normal” conditions.10. other parameters can affect the “near. etc. liquid–liquid flow has a maximum combined of the flow rate (both phases). Besides the length.2 Vertical Flow The vertical flow has two possibilities. In engineering application.5. CLASSIFICATION OF LIQUID-LIQUID FLOW REGIMES 337 this category is accepted). As many things in multiphase. flow that had slug flow in its path can be returned as stratified wavy flow. there is no consensus how far is the “near” means. Flow that is under small angle from the horizontal will be similar to the horizontal flow. with the gravity or against it. Qualitatively. As in many fluid mechanics and magnetic fields. in normal gravitation. The results of the above discussion are depicted in Figure 10. as in compressible flow. Hence. the vertical flow against the gravity is more common used. There is a difference between flowing with the gravity and flowing against the gravity. e.

see Figure 10. the different mechanism in creating the plug flow in horizontal flow compared to the vertical flow. For the flow against gravity. Flow of near vertical against the gravity in two–phase does not deviate from vertical. the flow starts as a bubble flow. Gas and liquid in Flow in verstical tube against the gravity. they create a large bubble and the flow is referred to as slug flow or plug flow (see Figure 10. Notice. The increase of the lighter liquid flow rate will increase the number of bubbles until some bubbles start to collide. The choking can occur at any point depends on the fluids and temperature and pressure. the lighter liquid has a buoyancy that acts as an “extra force” to move it faster and this effect is opposite for the heavier liquid. MULTI–PHASE FLOW Bubble Flow Slug or Plug Flow Churn Flow Annular Flow Dispersed Flow Fig. is acting in two different directions for these two flow regimes. After additional increase of “super slug” . The flow is less stable as more turbulent flow and several “super slug” or churn flow appears in more chaotic way. there are different flow regimes for these two situations. -10.6). the flow regime is referred as elongated bubble flow. it can be noted the difference in the mechanism that create annular flow for vertical and horizontal flow. Thus.6. The opposite is for the flow with gravity. Further increase of lighter liquid flow rate will increase the slug size as more bubbles collide to create “super slug”. all these “elongated slug” unite to become an annular flow. The heavier liquid has to occupy almost the entire cross section before it can flow because of the gravity forces. the flow cannot start as a stratified flow. . Flow Against Gravity For vertical flow against gravity. Any further increase transforms the outer liquid layer into bubbles in the inner liquid. When many bubbles collide. Thus.338 CHAPTER 10.6. The main reason that causes the difference is that the heavier liquid is more dominated by gravity (body forces) while the lighter liquid is dominated by the pressure driving forces. Again.

it must be possible to construct a model that connects this configuration with the stratified flow where the transitions will be dependent on the angle of inclinations. the regime liquid fills the entire void and the gas is in small bubble and this flow referred to as bubbly flow. In the literature. While this author is not aware of an actual model. In the medium range of the flow rate of gas and liquid. Here.10. the points where these transitions occur are different from the horizontal flow. The interaction between the phases is minimal and can be Fig.7).5. the flow continues in a stratified configuration. both will be united in this discussion. When the flow rate of the gas increases further. As the gas flow increases. -10. However. At a higher rate of liquid flow and a low flow rate of gas. Since the heavy liquid can be supplied from the “wrong” point/side.1. Figure 10. and Weber numbers. respectively. However. The ordinate is a combination of flow rate ratio and density ratio.6.Reynolds. all the gas phase change into tiny drops of liquid and this kind of regime referred to as mist flow. Pulsing For example. After the flow has settled. The initial part for this flow is more significant. the vertical configuration.6 Multi–Phase Flow Variables Definitions Since the gas–liquid system is a specific case of the liquid–liquid system. Flow With The Gravity As opposed to the flow against gravity. this flow can starts with stratified flow. A dimensional vertical flow map considered as the “open channel flow” of under very low gravity against the gravity. The liquid flows through Gas Flow Rage a trickle or channeled flow that only partially wets part of the tube. for the convenience of the terms “gas and liquid” will be used to signify the lighter and heavier liquid. it is presented in a dimension form to explain the trends (see Figure 10. the initial part has a larger section compared to the flow against the gravity flow. The flow starts as disTrickling persed bubble (some call it as “gas conFlow Spray or tinuous”) because the gas phase occupies Mist Flow most of column. The common map is based on dimensionless parameters.7. there is pulse flow in which liquid is moving in frequent pulses.3 Vertical Flow Under Micro Gravity 339 The above discussion mostly explained the Dispersed Dispersed flow in a vertical configuration when the Bubble Bubble surface tension can be neglected. out in space between gas and liquid (large density difference) the situaPulsing & Bubbling tion is different.

The liquid–liquid (also . MULTI–PHASE FLOW VARIABLES DEFINITIONS 10.7 presented in dimensionless coordinates. the liquid becomes more turbulent and some parts enter into the gas phase as drops. The transitions between the flow regimes is similar to stratified flow.

To simplify the descriptions of the problem and yet to retain the important features of the flow. and with time. The volumetric flow rate is not constant (since the density is not constant) along the flow rate and it is defined as QG = and for the liquid QL = GL ρL (10. over its cross section.4) mL ˙ A (10. the only serious missing point in this discussion is the change of the flow along the distance of the tube. The liquid mass velocity is GL = The mass flow of the tube is then G= m ˙ A (10.5) For liquid with very high bulk modulus (almost constant density). It has to be noted that this mass velocity does not exist in reality. the volumetric flow rate can be considered as constant.340 CHAPTER 10. The total volumetric volume vary along the tube length and is Q = QL + QG (10.6) GG = UsG ρG (10.2) Where A is the entire area of the tube. This method is the most common and important to analyze two-phase flow pressure drop and other parameters.1) It is common to define the mass velocity instead of the regular velocity because the “regular” velocity changes along the length of the pipe. some variables are defined so that the flow can be described as a one-dimensional flow.7) .3) It has to be emphasized that this mass velocity is the actual velocity.6. 10. The gas mass velocity is GG = mG ˙ A (10.1 Multi–Phase Averaged Variables Definitions The total mass flow rate through the tube is the sum of the mass flow rates of the two phases m = mG + mL ˙ ˙ ˙ (10. MULTI–PHASE FLOW gas–liquid) flow is an extremely complex three–dimensional transient problem since the flow conditions in a pipe may vary along its length. Perhaps.

11) Since UsL = QL and similarly for the gas then Um = UsG + UsL (10. it can be noted that the slip velocity is not constant along the tube. Thus. the value of (1 − X) is referred to as the “wetness fraction. The average superficial velocity of the gas and liquid are different.6. Thus. the ratio of these velocities is referred to as the slip velocity and is defined as the following SLP = UG UL (10.10. MULTI–PHASE FLOW VARIABLES DEFINITIONS 341 Ratio of the gas flow rate to the total flow rate is called the ’quality’ or the “dryness fraction” and is given by X= GG mG ˙ = m ˙ G (10. LH is not constant for the same reasons the void fraction is not constant.8) In a similar fashion. The gas superficial velocity is therefore defined as UsG = The liquid superficial velocity is UsL = GL (1 − X) m ˙ = = QL ρL ρL A (10.” The last two factions remain constant along the tube length as long the gas and liquid masses remain constant. .12) GG Xm ˙ = = QG ρG ρG A (10.13) Where Um is the averaged velocity. The actual velocities depend on the other phase since the actual cross section the phase flows is dependent on the other phase.10) It must be noted that Liquid holdup. Also.9) This fraction is vary along tube length since the gas density is not constant along the tube length.14) Slip ratio is usually greater than unity. The liquid fraction or liquid holdup is LH = 1 − α = AL A (10. The ratio of the gas flow cross sectional area to the total cross sectional area is referred as the void fraction and defined as α= AG A (10. a superficial velocity is commonly defined in which if only one phase is using the entire tube. It can be noticed that Um is not constant along the tube.

The density of any material is defined as ρ = m/V and thus. the mixture density is defined as ρm = α ρG + (1 − α) ρL (10.7) into equation (10.15) This density represents the density taken at the “frozen” cross section (assume the volume is the cross section times infinitesimal thickness of dx). thus equation (10.17) Equation (10.1) and (10.20) becomes X= ρG α ρL (1 − α) + ρG α (10. for the flowing material it is ρ= m ˙ Q (10.16) Where Q is the volumetric flow rate.17) can be simplified by canceling the m and noticing the (1−X)+X = 1 ˙ to become + (1−X) ρL The average specific volume of the flow is then X ρG ρaverage = 1 (10.21) .

Fig. -10.9. The flow patterns in solid-liquid flow.

One of the main difference between the liquid and gas flow in this category is the speed of sound. In the gas phase, the speed of sound is reduced dramatically with increase of the solid particles concentration (further reading Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” chapter on Fanno Flow by this author is recommended). Thus, the velocity √ of gas is limited when reaching the Mach somewhere between 1/ k and 1 since the gas will be choked (neglecting the double choking phenomenon). Hence, the length of conduit is very limited. The speed of sound of the liquid does not change much. Hence, this limitation does not (effectively) exist for most cases of solid–liquid flow.


Solid With Lighter Density ρS < ρ and With Gravity

This situation is minimal and very few cases exist. However, it must be pointed out that even in solid–gas, the fluid density can be higher than the solid (especially with micro gravity). There was very little investigations and known about the solid–liquid flowing down (with the gravity). Furthermore, there is very little knowledge about the solid–liquid when the solid density is smaller than the liquid density. There is no known flow map for this kind of flow that this author is aware of. Nevertheless, several conclusions and/or expectations can be drawn. The issue of minimum terminal velocity is not exist and therefor there is no fixed or mixed fluidized bed. The flow is fully fluidized for any liquid flow rate. The flow can have slug flow but more likely will be in fast Fluidization regime. The forces that act on the spherical particle are the buoyancy force and drag force. The buoyancy is accelerating the particle

π D3 g(ρS − ρL ) CD ∞ π D2 ρL (US − UL ) = (10.54) 6 8 From equation 10.54, it can observed that increase of the liquid velocity will increase the solid particle velocity at the same amount. Thus, for large velocity of the fluid it can be observed that UL /US → 1. However, for a small fluid velocity the velocity ratio is very large, UL /US → 0. The affective body force “seems” by the particles can be in some cases larger than the gravity. The flow regimes will be similar but the transition will be in different points. The solid–liquid horizontal flow has some similarity to horizontal gas–liquid flow. Initially the solid particles will be carried by the liquid to the top. When the liquid velocity increase and became turbulent, some of the particles enter into the liquid core. Further increase of the liquid velocity appear as somewhat similar to slug flow. However, this author have not seen any evidence that show the annular flow does not appear in solid–liquid flow.

10.9 Counter–Current Flow
This discussion will be only on liquid–liquid systems (which also includes liquid-gas systems). This kind of flow is probably the most common to be realized by the masses. For example, opening a can of milk or juice. Typically if only one hole is opened on the top of the can, the liquid will flow in pulse regime. Most people know that two holes are needed to empty the can easily and continuously. Otherwise, the flow will be in a pulse regime. In most cases, the possibility to have counter–current flow is limited to having short length of tubes. In only certain configurations of the infinite long pipes the counter–current flow can exist. Annular Extented Flow In that case, the pressure difference and Open Channel gravity (body forces) dominates the flow. Flow The inertia components of the flow, for Pulse Flow Inpossible long tubes, cannot compensate for the Flow pressure gradient. In short tube, the or Dripping Flow pressure difference in one phase can be f (D/L, physical properties) positive while the pressure difference in the other phase can be negative. The pressure difference in the interface must Fig. -10.10. Counter–flow in vertical tubes map. be finite. Hence, the counter–current flow can have opposite pressure gradient for short conduit. But in most cases, the heavy phase (liquid) is pushed by the gravity and lighter phase (gas) is driven by the pressure difference. The counter-current flow occurs, for example, when cavity is filled or emptied with a liquid. The two phase regimes “occurs” mainly in entrance to the cavity. For example,
Liquid Body Foreces



Fig. -10.11. Counter–current flow in a can (the left figure) has only one hole thus pulse flow and a flow with two holes (right picture).

Figure 10.11 depicts emptying of can filled with liquid. The air is “attempting” to enter the cavity to fill the vacuum created thus forcing pulse flow. If there are two holes, in some cases, liquid flows through one hole and the air through the second hole and the flow will be continuous. It also can be noticed that if there is one hole (orifice) and a long and narrow tube, the liquid will stay in the cavity (neglecting other phenomena such as dripping flow.).

Fig. -10.12. Picture of Counter-current flow in liquid–gas and solid–gas configurations. The container is made of two compartments. The upper compartment is filled with the heavy phase (liquid, water solution, or small wood particles) by rotating the container. Even though the solid–gas ratio is smaller, it can be noticed that the solid–gas is faster than the liquid–gas flow.

There are three flow regimes10 that have been observed. The first flow pattern is pulse flow regime. In this flow regime, the phases flow turns into different direction (see Figure 10.12). The name pulse flow is used to signify that the flow is flowing in pulses that occurs in a certain frequency. This is opposed to counter–current solid–gas flow when almost no pulse was observed. Initially, due to the gravity, the heavy liquid is leaving the can. Then the pressure in the can is reduced compared to the outside and some lighter liquid (gas)entered into the can. Then, the pressure in the can increase,
10 Caution! this statement should be considered as “so far found”. There must be other flow regimes that were not observed or defined. For example, elongated pulse flow was observed but measured. This field hasn’t been well explored. There are more things to be examined and to be studied.



and some heavy liquid will starts to flow. This process continue until almost the liquid is evacuated (some liquid stay due the surface tension). In many situations, the volume flow rate of the two phase is almost equal. The duration the cycle depends on several factors. The cycle duration can be replaced by frequency. The analysis of the frequency is much more complex issue and will not be dealt here. Annular Flow in Counter–current flow The other flow regime is annular flow in which the heavier phase is on the periphery of Water the conduit (In the literature, there are someFlow one who claims that heavy liquid will be inside). The analysis is provided, but somehow it contradicts with the experimental evidence. Probably, one or more of the assumptions that the analysis based is erroneous). In very small Steam Flow diameters of tubes the counter–current flow is not possible because of the surface tension (see section 4.7). The ratio of the diameter to the Fig. -10.13. Flood in vertical pipe. length with some combinations of the physical properties (surface tension etc) determines the point where the counter flow can start. At this point, the pulsing flow will start and larger diameter will increase the flow and turn the flow into annular flow. Additional increase of the diameter will change the flow regime into extended open channel flow. Extended open channel flow retains the characteristic of open channel that the lighter liquid (almost) does not effect the heavier liquid flow. Example of such flow in the nature is water falls in which water flows down and air (wind) flows up. The driving force is the second parameter which effects the flow existence. When the driving (body) force is very small, no counter–current flow is possible. Consider the can in zero gravity field, no counter–current flow possible. However, if the can was on the sun (ignoring the heat transfer issue), the flow regime in the can moves from pulse to annular flow. Further increase of the body force will move the flow to be in the extended “open channel flow.” In the vertical co–current flow there are two possibilities, flow with gravity or against it. As opposed to the co–current flow, the counter–current flow has no possibility for these two cases. The heavy liquid will flow with the body forces (gravity). Thus it should be considered as non existent flow.


Horizontal Counter–Current Flow

Up to this point, the discussion was focused on the vertical tubes. In horizontal tubes, there is an additional flow regime which is stratified . Horizontal flow is different from vertical flow from the stability issues. A heavier liquid layer can flow above a lighter liquid. This situation is unstable for large diameter but as in static (see section (4.7) page 137) it can be considered stable for small diameters. A flow in a very narrow tube with heavy fluid above the lighter fluid should be considered as a separate issue.


Single phase Flow or Dripping Flow

When the flow rate of both fluids is very small, the flow will be stratified counter–current flow. The flow will change to pulse flow when the heavy liquid flow rate increases. Further increase of the flow will result in a single phase flow regime. Thus, closing the window of this kind of flow. Thus, this increase terminates the two phase flow possibility. The flow map of the horizontal flow is different f (D/L, physical properties) from the vertical flow and is shown in Figure 10.14. A flow in an angle of inclination is closer to verti- Fig. -10.14. A flow map to explain the cal flow unless the angle of inclination is very small. horizontal counter–current flow. The stratified counter flow has a lower pressure loss (for the liquid side). The change to pulse flow increases the pressure loss dramatically.
Liquid Flow Rate Pulse Flow Straitified Flow


Flooding and Reversal Flow

The limits of one kind the counter–current flow regimes, that is stratified flow are discussed here. This problem appears in nuclear engineering (or boiler engineering) where there is a need to make sure that liquid (water) inserted into the pipe reaching the heating zone. When there is no water (in liquid phase), the fire could melt or damage the boiler. In some situations, the fire can be too large or/and the water supply failed below a critical value the water turn into steam. The steam will flow in the opposite direction. To analyze this situation consider a two dimensional conduit with a liquid inserted in the left side as depicted in Figure 10.13. The liquid velocity at very low gas velocity is constant but not uniform. Further increase of the gas velocity will reduce the average liquid velocity. Additional increase of the gas velocity will bring it to a point where the liquid will flow in a reverse direction and/or disappear (dried out). A simplified model for this situation is for a two dimensional configuration where the liquid is D flowing down and the gas is flowing up as shown h in Figure 10.15. It is assumed that both fluids are W ξ x y flowing in a laminar regime and steady state. Additionally, it is assumed that the entrance effects L can be neglected. The liquid flow rate, QL , is unknown. However, the pressure difference in the (x direction) is known and equal to zero. The boundLiquid Gas Flow ary conditions for the liquid is that velocity at the Flow wall is zero and the velocity at the interface is the same for both phases UG = UL or τi |G = τi |L . Fig. -10.15. A diagram to explain the As it will be shown later, both conditions cannot flood in a two dimension geometry. coexist. The model can be improved by considering turbulence, mass transfer, wavy interface, etc11 .
11 The circular configuration is under construction and will be appeared as a separated article momentarily.



This model is presented to exhibits the trends and the special features of counter-current flow. Assuming the pressure difference in the flow direction for the gas is constant and uniform. It is assumed that the last assumption does not contribute or change significantly the results. The underline rational for this assumption is that gas density does not change significantly for short pipes (for more information look for the book “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” in Potto book series in the Fanno flow chapter.). The liquid film thickness is unknown and can be expressed as a function of the above boundary conditions. Thus, the liquid flow rate is a function of the boundary conditions. On the liquid side, the gravitational force has to be balanced by the shear forces as dτxy = ρL g dx The integration of equation (10.55) results in τxy = ρL g x + C1 (10.56) (10.55)

The integration constant, C1 , can be found from the boundary condition where τxy (x = h) = τi . Hence, τi = ρL g h + C1 The integration constant is then Ci = τi − ρL g h which leads to τxy = ρL g (x − h) + τi (10.58) (10.57)

Substituting the newtonian fluid relationship into equation (10.58) to obtained µL or in a simplified form as dUy ρL g (x − h) τi = + dx µL µL Equation (10.60) can be integrate to yield Uy = ρL g µL x2 τi x − hx + + C2 2 µL (10.61) (10.60) dUy = ρL g (x − h) + τi dx (10.59)

The liquid velocity at the wall, [U (x = 0) = 0], is zero and the integration coefficient can be found to be C2 = 0 The liquid velocity profile is then ρL g µL x2 τi x − hx + 2 µL (10.62)

Uy =


356 The velocity at the liquid–gas interface is Uy (x = h) =


τi h ρL g h2 − µL 2 µL


The velocity can vanish (zero) inside the film in another point which can be obtained from 0= ρL g µL x2 τi x − hx + 2 µL (10.65)

The solution for equation (10.65) is x|@UL =0 = 2 h − 2 τi µL g ρL (10.66)

The maximum x value is limited by the liquid film thickness, h. The minimum shear stress that start to create reversible velocity is obtained when x = h which is 0= ρL g µL h2 τi h − hh + 2 µL h g ρL → τi0 = 2 (10.67)

If the shear stress is below this critical shear stress τi 0 then no part of the liquid will have a reversed velocity. The notation of τi0 denotes the special value at which a starting shear stress value is obtained to have reversed flow. The point where the liquid flow rate is zero is important and it is referred to as initial flashing point. The flow rate can be calculated by integrating the velocity across the entire liquid thickness of the film. Q = w

Integration equation


It is interesting to find the point where the liquid mass flow rate is zero. This point can be obtained when equation (10.69) is equated to zero. There are three solutions for equation (10.69). The first two solutions are identical in which the film height is h = 0 and the liquid flow rate is zero. But, also, the flow rate is zero when 3 τi = 2 g h ρL . This request is identical to the demand in which 2 g h ρL 3







This critical shear stress, for a given film thickness, reduces the flow rate to zero or effectively “drying” the liquid (which is different then equation (10.67)). For this shear stress, the critical upward interface velocity is

becomes (notice the change of the sign accounting for g h ρL 3

Again, the gas is assumed to be in a laminar flow as well. The shear stress on gas side is balanced by the pressure gradient in the y direction. The momentum balance on element in the gas side is dτxy G dP = dx dy (10.74)

The pressure gradient is a function of the gas compressibility. For simplicity, it is assumed that pressure gradient is linear. This assumption means or implies that the gas is incompressible flow. If the gas was compressible with an ideal gas equation of state then the pressure gradient is logarithmic. Here, for simplicity reasons, the linear equation is used. In reality the logarithmic equation should be used ( a discussion can be found in “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” a Potto project book). Thus, equation (10.74) can be rewritten as dτxy G ∆P ∆P = = dx ∆y L (10.75)

Where ∆y = L is the entire length of the flow and ∆P is the pressure difference of the entire length. Utilizing the Newtonian relationship, the differential equation is ∆P d2 UG = dx2 µG L
12 Also


noticing that equation (10.70) has to be equal g h ρL to support the weight of the liquid.



Equation (10.76) can be integrated twice to yield UG = ∆P 2 x + C1 x + C2 µG L (10.77)

This velocity profile must satisfy zero velocity at the right wall. The velocity at the interface is the same as the liquid phase velocity or the shear stress are equal. Mathematically these boundary conditions are UG (x = D) = 0 and UG (x = h) = UL (x = h) τG (x = h) = τL (x = h) Applying B.C. (10.78) into equation (10.77) results in UG = 0 = ∆P D2 + C1 D + C2 µG L ∆P → C2 = − D 2 + C1 D µG L (10.80) (a) (b) or (10.79) (10.78)

Which leads to UG = ∆P x2 − D2 + C1 (x − D) µG L (10.81)

At the other boundary condition, equation (10.79)(a), becomes ρL g h2 ∆P = h2 − D2 + C1 (h − D) 6 µL µG L The last integration constant, C1 can be evaluated as C1 = ρL g h 2 ∆P (h + D) − 6 µL (h − D) µG L (10.83) (10.82)

With the integration constants evaluated, the gas velocity profile is UG = ∆P ρL g h2 (x − D) ∆P (h + D) (x − D) x2 − D2 + − µG L 6 µL (h − D) µG L (10.84)

The velocity in Equation (10.84) is equal to the velocity equation (10.64) when (x = h). However, in that case, it is easy to show that the gas shear stress is not equal to the liquid shear stress at the interface (when the velocities are assumed to be the equal). The difference in shear stresses at the interface due to this assumption, of the equal velocities, cause this assumption to be not physical.

The velocity at interface can have a “slip” in very low density and for short distances.79)(b). the integration constant is C1 = The gas velocity profile is then UG = ∆P x2 − D2 + µG L 2 g h ρL 2 h ∆P − 3 µG µG L (x − D) 2 g h ρL 2 h ∆P − 3 µG µG L (10. different thing(s) must happen. condition (10.

A.3 Partial Differential Equations
Partial Differential Equations (PDE) are differential equations which include function includes the partial derivatives of two or more variables. Example of such equation is F (ut , ux , . . .) = 0 (A.111)

Where subscripts refers to derivative based on it. For example, ux = ∂u . Note that ∂x partial derivative also include mix of derivatives such as ux y. As one might expect PDE are harder to solve. Many situations in fluid mechanics can be described by PDE equations. Generally, the PDE solution is done by transforming the PDE to one or more ODE. Partial differential equations are categorized by the order of highest derivative. The nature of the solution is based whether the equation is elliptic parabolic and hyperbolic. Normally, this characterization is done for for second order. However, sometimes similar definition can be applied for other order. The physical meaning of the these definition is that these equations have different characterizations. The solution of elliptic equations depends on the boundary conditions The solution of parabolic equations depends on the boundary conditions but as well on the initial conditions. The hyperbolic equations are associated with method of characteristics because physical situations depends only on the initial conditions. The meaning for initial conditions is that of solution depends on some early points of the flow (the solution). The general second-order PDE in two independent variables has the form axx uxx + 2axy uxy + ayy uyy + · · · = 0 (A.112)

The coefficients axx , axy , ayy might depend upon ”x” and ”y”. Equation (A.112) is similar to the equations for a conic geometry: axx x2 + axy x y + ayy y 2 + · · · = 0 (A.113)

In the same manner that conic geometry equations are classified are based on the discriminant a2 − 4 axx ayy , the same can be done for a second-order PDE. The disxy criminant can be function of the x and y and thus can change sign and thus the characteristic of the equation. Generally, when the discriminant is zero the equation are called parabolic. One example of such equation is heat equation. When the discriminant



is larger then zero the equation is referred as hyperbolic equations. In fluid mechanics this kind equation appear in supersonic flow or in supper critical flow in open channel flow. The equations that not mentioned above are elliptic which appear in ideal flow and subsonic flow and sub critical open channel flow.


First-order equations

First order equation can be written as u = ax ∂u ∂u + ay + ... ∂x ∂x (A.114)

The interpretation the equation characteristic is complicated. However, the physics dictates this character and will be used in the book. An example of first order equation is ∂u ∂u + =0 ∂x ∂y (A.115)

The solution is assume to be u = Y (y) X(x) and substitute into the (A.115) results in Y (y) ∂X(x) ∂Y (y) + X(x) =0 ∂x ∂y (A.116)

Rearranging equation (A.116) yields 1 ∂X(x) 1 ∂Y (y) + =0 X(x) ∂x Y (y) ∂y (A.117)

A possible way the equation (A.117) can exist is that these two term equal to a constant. Is it possible that these terms not equal to a constant? The answer is no if the assumption of the solution is correct. If it turned that assumption is wrong the ratio is not constant. Hence, the constant is denoted as λ and with this definition the PDE is reduced into two ODE. The first equation is X function 1 ∂X(x) =λ X(x) ∂x The second ODE is for Y 1 ∂Y (y) = −λ Y (y) ∂y (A.119) (A.118)

Equations (A.119) and (A.118) are ODE that can be solved with the methods described before for certain boundary condition.
