Bar-Meir developed models that explained several manufacturing processes such the rapid evacuation of gas from containers. this author’s views had changed and the virtue of the practical part of any model becomes the essential part of his ideas. All the models have practical applicability. Much of his time has been spend doing research in the field of heat and mass transfer (related to renewal energy issues) and this includes fluid mechanics related to manufacturing processes and design.D. he spends time writing books (there are already three very popular books) and softwares for the POTTO project (see Potto Prologue). books and software.

These models have been extended by several research groups (needless to say with large research grants). As the change in the view occurred.

A past project of his was building a four stories house. Bar-Meir demonstrated that common Prandtl–Meyer explanation violates the conservation of mass and therefor the turn must be around a finite radius. In his book “Basics of Fluid Mechanics”. he often feels clueless about computers and programing. All the previous models for the flooding phenomenon did not have a physical explanation to the dryness. The common explanation to Prandtl–Meyer function shows that flow can turn in a sharp corner. Bar-Meir demonstrated that fluids must have wavy surface when the materials flow together. While he is known to look like he knows about many things. The author’s explanations on missing diameter and other issues in fanno flow and ““naughty professor’s question”” are used in the industry.

The first issue is the enormous price of college textbooks. one of this author’s sages.

The writing of a technical book is really a collection of information and practice. This project is to increase wisdom and humility. one should increase wisdom. As individuals we have to obey the law. However. The study of technical material isn’t only done by having to memorize the material. It is unacceptable that the price of the college books will be over $150 per book (over 10 hours of work for an average student in The United States). the creation of the POTTO Project. The second issue that prompted the writing of this book is the fact that we as the public have to deal with a corrupted judicial system. On one hand.

The author has not found any technique that is more useful for this purpose than practicing the solving of problems and exercises. the undersigned believes that personal intentions are appropriate and are the author’s/organizer’s private affair. The book’s contributor’s names could be written by their sections. Why would someone volunteer to be an author or organizer of such a book? This is the first question the undersigned was asked. One component is to come to know and socialize with many in the profession. in the course of their teaching they have found that the textbook they were using contains sections that can be improved or that are not as good as their own notes. The collective material is much richer than any single person can create by himself. Thus. To reach this possibility the collective book idea was created/adapted. For others the social part is as simple as a desire to reduce the price of college textbooks. When an insect which is blind can be so powerful by networking. then that contributor will be the copyright holder of that specific section (even within question/answer sections). Whatever the reasons. The desire to be an author of a well–known book (at least in his/her profession) will convince some to put forth the effort. this method is expected to accelerate the creation of these high quality books. For some contributors/authors. The answer varies from individual to individual. One can be successful when one solves as many problems as Nigel R. In a way. It is not just for experts to contribute. the collective power of their networking creates an extremely powerful intelligence to carry out this attack4 . If a contributor of a section in such a book can be easily identified. the reason is the pure fun of writing and organizing educational material. The following example explains this point: The army ant is a kind of carnivorous ant that lives and hunts in the tropics.” American Scientist. While a single ant is not intelligent enough to attack and hunt large prey. For some authors. While one can be as creative as possible.html) . the popularity of the books should be one of the incentives for potential contributors. It is hoped that because of the open nature of these books. they now have an opportunity to put their notes to use for others. Experience has shown that in explaining to others any given subject.

For example.xl LIST OF TABLES related problems. so can we in creating textbooks by this powerful tool. The social function can have at least two components. they will become the most popular books and the most read books in their respected field. especially for family members or relatives and those students lacking funds.

The book on compressible flow is also used by “young engineers and scientists” in NASA according to Dr. better discussions or better explanations are all welcome to these books. The books are used in more than 165 different countries around the world. These books should be considered more as a project than to fit the traditional definition of “plain” books. Potto has auxiliary materials such as the gas dynamics tables (the largest compressible flow tables collection in the world). these works will have a version number because they are alive and continuously evolving.

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.

This book, Basics of Fluid Mechanics, describes the fundamentals of fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructor’s notes for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc. The structure of this book is such that many of the chapters could be usable independently. For example, if you need information about, say, statics’ equations, you can read just chapter (4). I hope this makes the book easier to use as a reference manual. However, this manuscript is first and foremost a textbook, and secondly a reference manual only as a lucky coincidence. I have tried to describe why the theories are the way they are, rather than just listing “seven easy steps” for each task. This means that a lot of information is presented which is not necessary for everyone. These explanations have been marked as such and can be skipped.9 Reading everything will, naturally, increase your understanding of the many aspects of fluid mechanics. This book is written and maintained on a volunteer basis. Like all volunteer work, there is a limit on how much effort I was able to put into the book and its organization. Moreover, due to the fact that English is my third language and time limitations, the explanations are not as good as if I had a few years to perfect them. Nevertheless, I believe professionals working in many engineering fields will benefit from this information. This book contains many worked examples, which can be very useful for many. I have left some issues which have unsatisfactory explanations in the book, marked with a Mata mark. I hope to improve or to add to these areas in the near future.

Furthermore, I hope that many others will participate of this project and will contribute to this book (even small contributions such as providing examples or editing mistakes are needed). I have tried to make this text of the highest quality possible and am interested in your comments and ideas on how to make it better.

CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
1.1 What is Fluid Mechanics?
Fluid mechanics deals with the study of all fluids under static and dynamic situations. Fluid mechanics is a branch of continuous mechanics which deals with a relationship between forces, motions, and statical conditions in continuous material. This study area deals with many and diversified problems such as surface tension, fluid statics, flow in enclose bodies, or flow round bodies (solid or otherwise), flow stability, etc. In fact, almost any action a person is doing involves some kind of a fluid mechanics problem. Furthermore, the boundary between the solid mechanics and fluid mechanics is some kind of gray shed and not a sharp distinction (see Figure 1.1 for the complex relationships between the different branches which only part of it should be drawn in the same time.). For example, glass appears as a solid material, but a closer look reveals that the glass is a liquid with a large viscosity. A proof of the glass “liquidity” is the change of the glass thickness in high windows in European Churches after hundred years. The bottom part of the glass is thicker than the top part. Materials like sand (some call it quick sand) and grains should be treated as liquids. It is known that these materials have the ability to drown people. Even material such as aluminum just below the mushy zone also behaves as a liquid similarly to butter. After it was established that the boundaries of fluid mechanics aren’t sharp, the discussion in this book is limited to simple and (mostly) Newtonian (sometimes power fluids) fluids which will be defined later. The fluid mechanics study involve many fields that have no clear boundary between them. Researchers distinguish between orderly flow and chaotic flow as the laminar flow and the turbulent flow. The fluid mechanics can also be distinguish between a single phase flow and multiphase flow (flow made more than one phase or single distinguishable material). The last boundary (as all the boundaries in fluid mechanics)


Then the dimensional analysis will be used explain why in certain cases one distinguish area/principle is more relevant than the other and some effects can be neglected. Or.2 CHAPTER 1. It is this author’s personal experience that the knowledge and ability to know in what area the situation lay is one of the main problems. isn’t sharp because fluid can go through a phase change (condensation or evaporation) in the middle or during the flow and switch from a single phase flow to a multi phase flow. After it was made clear that the boundaries of fluid mechanics aren’t sharp. air with dust particle). -1. the study must make arbitrary boundaries between fields. engineers in software company (EKK Inc. when a general model is need because more parameters are effecting the situation. http://ekkinc.

Yet. At some point. chapters on open channel flow (as a sub class of the multiphase flow) and compressible flow (with the latest developments) are provided. This discrepancy between theory and practice is called the “D’Alembert paradox” and serves to demonstrate the limitations of theory alone in solving fluid problems. These two approaches have justifications and positive points. Reviewing many books on fluid mechanics made it clear. turbulence.) on the principles of buoyancy. 1. and D’Alembert. The first approach introduces the fluid kinematic and then the basic governing equations. For example. After his initial work.” For example the concept of ideal liquid that leads to motion with no resistance. At that stage theory and experiments had some discrepancy.2 Brief History The need to have some understanding of fluid mechanics started with the need to obtain water supply.C. conflicts with the reality. Before dealing with the boundaries. This fact was acknowledged by D’Alembert who stated that. to be followed by stability. boundary layer and internal and external flow . Thus. There were no calculations even with the great need for water supply and transportation. The ideal flow (frictionless flow) should be expanded compared to the regular treatment. one of the main goals of this book is to explain what model should be applied. BRIEF HISTORY 3 complex turbulent flow model. Such absurd analysis are common among engineers who do not know which model can be applied.1. This book attempts to find a hybrid approach in which the kinematic is presented first (aside to standard initial four chapters) follow by Integral analysis and continued by Differential analysis. almost all knowledge of the ancients can be summarized as application of instincts. Torricelli. the knowledge of fluid mechanics (hydraulic) increasingly gained speed by the contributions of Galileo. there isn’t a clear winner. This book is unique in providing chapter on multiphase flow. with the exception Archimedes (250 B. people realized that water can be used to move things and provide power. For example. larger tunnels built for a larger water supply. He also made several attempts to study the flight (birds) and developed some concepts on the origin of the forces. two different of school of thoughts were created: the first be- . These two approaches pose a dilemma to anyone who writes an introductory book for the fluid mechanics. Bernoulli family. There are two main approaches of presenting an introduction of fluid mechanics materials. and continue with Empirical Analysis. a large population created a need to solve waste (sewage) and some basic understanding was created. Later. the simplified private cases must be explained. Newton. Euler. The first progress in fluid mechanics was made by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) who built the first chambered canal lock near Milan. Naturally. As in thermodynamics.2. etc. The second approach deals with the Integral Analysis to be followed with Differential Analysis. “The theory of fluids must necessarily be based upon experiment. aqueducts were constructed. people realized that wells have to be dug and crude pumping devices need to be constructed. When cities increased to a larger size. These aqueducts reached their greatest size and grandeur in those of the City of Rome and China.

the change of water pressure by 1000% only change the volume by less than 1 percent. Thus. Thus. 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 second quantity discussed here is the area. the pressure will not affect the volume. The pressure component in the area . This difference can be. For example. sharp even though in reality this difference isn’t sharp. no shear stress is applied.g it has a direction. Inc). e. the discussion on the mathematical meaning will be presented (later version). any change in pressure directly affects the volume. It is evident from this discussion that when a liquid is at rest. no weather prediction program can produce good engineering quality results (where the snow will fall within 50 kilometers accuracy. For example.3. the emphasis is on the physics. EKK. This quantity was discussed in physics class but here it has an additional meaning. The traditional quantity. The study of this kind of material called rheology and it will (almost) not be discussed in this book. Building a car with this accuracy is a disaster). then the change of volume is at best 5%. There are several quantities that have to be addressed in this discussion. In gaseous phase. it behaves like solid and under others it behaves like liquid (see Figure 1. 1. In this book. The fluid is mainly divided into two categories: liquids and gases. KINDS OF FLUIDS 5 other cases that numerical analysis cannot provide any meaningful result (trends). these programs are as good as the input provided. This test creates a new material group that shows dual behaviors. so at this stage the tensor will have to be broken into its components. In the best scenario. one in the area direction and two perpendicular to the area. and it is referred to the direction of the area. if the change of pressure is significantly less than that. This is a result of division of a vector by a vector and it is referred to as tensor. The area is measured in [m2 ]. The first is force which was reviewed in physics.1). For the discussion here. The direction of area is perpendicular to the area. for most practical purposes considered. under certain limits. Hence. The difference between a gas phase to a liquid phase above the critical point are practically minor. It is also said that liquid cannot return to their original state after the deformation. So.1. The gas fills the volume and liquid cannot. assuming turbulent flow for still flow simply provides erroneous results (see for example. the pressure has three components. Gas has no free interface/surface (since it does fill the entire volume). This differentiation leads to three groups of materials: solids and liquids. which is force per area has a new meaning. Area of three–dimensional object has no single direction. a change in the volume by more 5% will required tens of thousands percent change of the pressure.3 Kinds of Fluids Some differentiate fluid from solid by the reaction to shear stress. these kinds of areas should be addressed infinitesimally and locally. Later. The unit used to measure is [N]. It is a known fact said that the fluid continuously and permanently deformed under shear stress while solid exhibits a finite deformation which does not change with time. It must be remember that force is a vector. But below the critical point.

PRESSURE AND DENSITY IN A GRAVITATIONAL FIELD 81 4.3.1 The Pressure Effects Due To Temperature Variations The Basic Analysis There are situations when the main change of the density results from other effects. For h = 0. the temperature–distance function can be written as T = Constant − Cx h (4. when the temperature field is not uniform.48) where h here referred to height or distance.

That is. A weak wind or other disturbances can make the unstable system to move to a new condition. In reality. Suppose that h for some reason. the body forces that acting on the slab are equal to zero. The second issue that occurs during the “expansion” is the shock (in the reverse case [h + dh] → h). to layer at height h + dh (see Figure 4.58) Advance material can be skipped 4. The buoyancy forces are proportional to the ratio of the density of the slab to surrounding layer density. PRESSURE AND DENSITY IN A GRAVITATIONAL FIELD equations is by assuming the ideal gas model.2 The Stability Analysis It is interesting to study whether h + dh this solution (4. equation (2.25). the free expansion is not far way from the actual process. the stability question is whether the slab density from layer h.3. Thus.4. . Under equilibrium. Two adjoin layers for stability analysis. two main possibilities one: the slab could return to the original layer or two: stay at the new layer (or even move further.55) is stable and if so under what conditions. the surroundings “pressure” forces (buoyancy forces) are equal to gravity forces.4. -4. ρ (h) undergoing a free expansion is higher or lower than the density of the layer h + dh. The whole system falls apart and does not stay if the analysis predicts unstable conditions. That is. The two forces that act on the slab are the gravity force and the surroundings pressure (buoyant forces). 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. Whether these forces are toward the original layer or not. a small slab of material moves from a layer at height. the pressure process is about thousands times faster than the thermal process. Clearly. The term ρ (h) is slab from layer h that had undergone the free expansion. The thermal process is in the range of [cm/sec] while the speed of sound is about 300 [m/sec]. The first case is referred to as the stable condition and the second case referred to as the unstable condition. h. This question is determined by the net forces acting on the slab.11) What could happen? There are Fig. The two processes that occurred here are thermal and the change of pressure (at the speed of sound). higher heights). the slab is in equilibrium with its surroundings before the movement (not necessarily stable).

Thus. -4. around this value additional analysis is needed 8 .1 Ideal Gas in Varying Gravity In physics.66) The analysis shows that the maximum amount depends on the gravity and gas properties.5 Gravity Variations Effects on Pressure and Density Until now the study focus on the change of density and pressure of the fluid. r → ∞ the pressure is about zero. The varying gravity effects Thus. One of the common question this author has been asked is about the forces of continuation. It should be noted that this value should be changed a bit since the k should be replaced by polytropic expansion n.

A discussion about this effect will be presented in the dimensional analysis chapter. why this approach is correct in most cases is not explained here. the dissipation creates a loss that has temperature component. the shear stresses at the exit are normal to the flow direction hence the shear work is vanished.

A comparison between the actual kinetic energy and the kinetic energy due to the “averaged” velocity (to be called the averaged kinetic energy) provides a correction coefficient. The first integral can be estimated by examining the velocity profile effects.31) A The kinetic energy related to the averaged velocity with a correction factor which depends on the geometry and the velocity profile.7. Even the averaged velocity is zero the kinetic energy is not zero and another method should be used.

This integral can be evaluated for any given velocity profile. A large family of velocity profiles is laminar or parabolic (for one directional flow)11 . For a pipe geometry, the velocity is U r R = U (¯) = Umax 1 − r2 = 2 Uave 1 − r2 r ¯ ¯ (7.36)

It can be noticed that the velocity is presented as a function of the reduced radius12 . The relationship between Umax to the averaged velocity, Uave is obtained by using equation (7.32) which yields 1/2. Substituting equation (7.36) into equation (7.35) results Uave 2 V U 2 dV

The correction factor for many other velocity profiles and other geometries can be smaller or larger than this value. For circular shape, a good guess number is about 1.1. In this case, for simplicity reason, it is assumed that the averaged velocity indeed represent the energy in the tank or container. Calculations according to this point can improve the accurately based on the above discussion. The difference between the “averaged momentum” velocity and the “averaged kinetic” velocity is also due to the fact that energy is added for different directions while in the momentum case, different directions cancel each other out.
11 Laminar flow is not necessarily implies that the flow velocity profile is parabolic. The flow is parabolic only when the flow is driven by pressure or gravity. More about this issue in the Differential Analysis Chapter. 12 The advantage is described in the Dimensional Analysis Chapter.

Equation (7.69) is referred in the literature as Torricelli’s equation18 This analysis has several drawbacks which limits the accuracy of the calculations. Yet, this analysis demonstrates the usefulness of the integral analysis to provide a reasonable solution. This analysis can be improved by experimental investigating the phenomenon.

7.2 Limitation of Integral Approach
Some of accuracy issues to enhance the quality and improvements of the integral method were suggested in the analysis of the emptying tank. There are problems that the integral methods even with these enhancements simply cannot tackle. The improvements to the integral methods are the corrections to the estimates of the energy or other quantities in the conservation equations. In the calculations
18 Evangelista Torricelli (October 15, 1608 October 25, 1647) was an Italian physicist and mathematician. He derived this equation based on similar principle to Bernoulli equation (which later leads to Bernoulli’s equation). Today the exact reference to his work is lost only “sketches” of his lecture elude work. He was student (not formal) and follower of Galileo Galilei. It seems that Torricelli was an honest man who gave to others and he died at young age of 39 while in his prime.



of the exit velocity of a tank, two such corrections were presented. The first type is the prediction of the velocities profile (or the concentration profile). The second type of corrections is the understanding that averaged of the total field is different from the averaged of different zooms. In the case of the tank, the averaged velocity in x direction is zero yet the averaged velocity in the two zooms (two halves) is not zero. In fact, the averaged energy in the x direction contributes or effects the energy equation. The accuracy issues that integral methods intrinsically suffers from no ability to exact flow field and thus lost the accuracy as was discussed in the example. The integral method does not handle the problems such as the free surface with reasonable accuracy. Furthermore, the knowledge of whether the flow is laminar or turbulent (later on this issue) has to come from different techniques. Hence the prediction can skew the actual predictions. In the analysis of the tank it was assumed that the dissipation can be igD nored. In cases that dissipation play major air air role, the integral does not provide a sufH equilibrioum level ficient tool to analyze the issue at hand. H For example, the analysis of the oscillating manometer cannot be carried by the intelowest level for the liquid gral methods. A liquid in manometer is disturbed from a rest by a distance of H0 . The description H(t) as a function of time requires exact knowledge of the velocity field. Additionally, the integral methods is Fig. -7.4. Flow in an oscillating manometer. too crude to handle issues of free interface. These problem were minor for the emptying the tank but for the oscillating manometer it is the core of the problem. Hence different techniques are required. The discussion on the limitations was not provided to discard usage of this method but rather to provide a guidance of use with caution. The integral method is a powerful and yet simple method but has has to be used with the limitations of the method in mind.

7.3 Approximation of Energy Equation
The emptying the tank problem was complicated even with all the simplifications that were carried. Engineers in order to reduce the work further simplify the energy equation. It turn out that these simplifications can provide reasonable results and key understanding of the physical phenomena and yet with less work, the problems can be solved. The following sections provides further explanation.

Here. Calculations of many kinds of flow deals with more than one phase or material flow1 . working for the government who analyzed filing cavity with liquid metal (aluminum).there are two possibilities (1) the fluids/materials are flowing in well homogeneous mixed (where the main problem 1 An example. it is believed that the interactions/calculations requires a full year class and hence. books on multiphase flow were written more as a literature review or heavy on the mathematics.1 Introduction Traditionally. his analysis is in the twilight zone not in the real world. is required for many engineering problems. the topic of multi–phase flow is ignored in an introductory class on fluid mechanics. who did not consider the flow as two–phase flow and ignoring the air. the nature of multiphase flow requires solving many equations. only the trends and simple calculations are described. this class will be the only opportunity to be exposed to this topic. 261 . Thus. For many engineers. This book attempts to describe these issues as a fundamentals of physical aspects and less as a literature review. The knowledge in this topic without any doubts.CHAPTER 9 Multi–Phase Flow 9. The author believes that the trends and effects of multiphase flow could and should be introduced and considered by engineers. Additionally. In the past. For simple models.2 History The study of multi–phase flow started for practical purposes after World War II. 2 Or when the scientific principles simply dictate. It is recognized that multiphase flow is still evolving. As result. Initially the models were using simple assumptions. This chapter provides information that is more or less in consensus2 . there is not a consensus to the exact map of many flow regimes.D. In fact. there was a Ph. in many books the representations is by writing the whole set governing equations. 9.

When it became apparent that specific models were needed for different situations. (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 that followed Lockhart and Martinelli looked for a different map for different combination of phases. a description of what to expect in this chapter is provided. However. However. this chapter will explain the core concepts of the multiphase flow and their relationship. 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). Also the researchers looked at the situation when the different regimes are applicable. Taitle–Duckler’s map is not applicable for microgravity. 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 . This chapter will provide: a category of combination of phases. and actual calculation of pressure of the different regimes. Taitle and Duckler’s map is not universal and it is only applied to certain liquid–gas conditions. This chapter will introduce these concepts so that the engineer not only be able to understand a conversation on multi-phase but also. Which leads to the concept of flow regime maps.3 What to Expect From This Chapter As oppose to the tradition of the other chapters in this book and all other Potto project books. and more importantly. The flow patterns or regimes were not considered. this chapter will not provide a discussion of transient problems. It turned out this idea provides a good crude results in some cases. the concept of flow regimes. researchers started to look for different flow regimes and provided different models.262 CHAPTER 9. Taitle and Duckler suggested a map based on five non-dimensional groups which are considered as the most useful today. and importance to real world. phase change or transfer processes during flow. double choking phenomenon (hopefully). Hence.

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. The number of the downloads of the book on Fundamental of compressible flow has exceed more than 100. Air is not a pure material but a mixture of many gases. For example. -9. In our calculation. there are situations when air flow has to be considered as multiphase flow and this effect has to be taken into account. consider air flow that was discussed and presented earlier as a single phase flow. While the difference of the concentration between the top to button is insignificant. many layers (infinite) of different materials).1. Adopting this assumption might lead to a larger error. The creation 3 This author feels that he is in an unique position to influence many in the field of fluid mechanics. In fact. The discussion in the previous chapters is only as approximation when multiphase can be “reduced” into a single phase flow.9.4 Kind of Multi-Phase Flow All the flows are a form of multiphase flow.

Hence. many proprieties of air are calculated as if the air is made of well mixed gases of Nitrogen and Oxygen. Different fields of multi phase flow.

There are many more categories. it is more common to categorize the flow by the distinct phases that flow in the tube. Generally. the cleanness of the air or the fact that air is a mixture is ignored. This category should include any distinction of phase/material. the cleanness of air can reduce the speed of sound. paint spray. The multiphase is an important part of many processes. hydraulic with two or more kind of liquids. The engineering accuracy is enough to totally ignore it. there are two possibilities for two different materials to flow (it is also correct for solid–liquid and any other combination). Gas–solid can be found in sand storms. Thus. there are situations where cleanness of the air can affect the flow. Flow of air is actually the flow of several light liquids (gases).

This notion eliminates many other flow categories that can and should be included in multiphase flow. The water flow is the source of the friction. Many natural phenomenon are multiphase flow. Many industrial process also include liquid-liquid such as painting. The liquid–solid. The “average” viscosity is meaningless since in many cases the water follows around the oil. For the gas. Yet.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. for example. For example. The multiphase can be found in nature. Many industries are involved with this flow category such as dust collection. sand and grain (which are “solids”) flow with rocks and is referred to solid–solid flow. liquid–gas and solid–liquid–gas flow.

This flow also appears in any industrial process that are involved in solidification (for example die casting) and in moving solid particles. The same can be said for gas–gas flow. although important.

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. water and air flow as oppose to water and oil flow.1 Horizontal Flow The typical regimes for horizontal flow are stratified flow (open channel flow. The channel flow will be discussed in a greater detail in Open Channel Flow chapter.2. -9. For example. the limits between the flow regimes are considerably different. 5 With the exception of the extremely smaller diameter where Rayleigh–Taylor instability is an important issue. The flow regimes are referred to the arrangement of the fluids. 9. The other characteristic that is different between the gas flow and the liquid flow is the variation of the density.1. CLASSIFICATION OF LIQUID-LIQUID FLOW REGIMES 265 materials flow in the opposite direction. the counter–current flow must have special configurations of long length of flow. When the flow rate of the lighter liquid is almost zero.1 Co–Current Flow In Co–Current flow. 5 top as depicted in Figure 9. a reduction of the pressure by half will double the gas volumetric flow rate while the change in the liquid is negligible. dispersed Heavy Liquid bubble flow. it is referred as counter–current. This kind of flow regime is referred to as horizontal flow. Additionally. For low velocity (low flow rate) of the two liquids. In general. Light Liquid and non open channel flow). Yet.5. For example. 9. and annular flow. plug flow. The vertical configuration has two cases.9. The geometries (even the boundaries) of open channel flow are very diverse. This issue of incline flow will not be covered in this chapter. 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). The main difference between the liquid–liquid flow to gas-liquid flow is that gas density is extremely lighter than the liquid density. the flow is referred to as open channel flow. . the co-current is the more common. 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). and what ever between them. Thus. the heavy liquid flows on the Fig.5. 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. two liquids can have three main categories: vertical. The flow in inclined angle (that not covered by the word “near”) exhibits flow regimes not much different from the other two. Stratified flow in horizontal tubes when bottom and lighter liquid flows on the the liquids flow is very slow.2. It is common to differentiate between the vertical (and near vertical) and horizontal (and near horizontal). Generally. horizontal. up or down. the counter–current flow has a limited length window of possibility in a vertical flow in conduits with the exception of magnetohydrodynamics.5.



As the lighter liquid (or the gas phase) flow rate increases (superficial velocity), the friction between the phases increase. The superficial velocity is referred to as the velocity that any phase will have if the other phase was not exist. 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 9.3). 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. The configuration of the cross section not only depend on the surface tension, and other physical properties of the fluids but also on the material of the conduit. As the lighter liquid velocity increases two things can happen (1) wave size increase and (2) the shape of cross section continue to deform. 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. In fact, all the two phase flow are categorized by wavy flow which will proven later. Fig. -9.3. Kind of Stratified flow in There are two paths that can occur on the heavier horizontal tubes. liquid flow rate. If the heavier flow rate is small, 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. This kind of flow regime is referred to as annular flow. If the heavier liquid flow rate is larger6 than the distance, for the wave to reach the conduit crown is smaller. At some point, when the lighter liquid flow increases, the heavier liquid wave reaches to the crown of the pipe. At this stage, the flow pattern is referred to as slug flow or plug flow. 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). These plugs are separated by large “chunks” that almost fill the entire tube. The plugs are flowing in a succession (see Figure 9.4). The pressure drop of this kind of regime is significantly larger than the stratified flow. The slug flow cannot be assumed to be as homogeneous flow nor it can exhibit some average viscosity. The “average” viscosity depends on the flow and thus making it as insignificant way to do the calculations. Further increase of the lighter liquid flow rate move the flow regime into annular flow. Thus, the possibility to go through slug flow regime depends on if there is enough liquid flow rate. Choking occurs in compressible Light Liquid flow when the flow rate is above a certain point. All liquids are compressible Heavy Liquid to some degree. For liquid which the density is a strong and primary function of the pressure, choking occurs relatively Fig. -9.4. Plug flow in horizontal tubes when the closer/sooner. Thus, the flow that starts liquids flow is faster. 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

this category is accepted). After a certain distance, the flow become annular or the flow will choke. The choking can occur before the annular flow regime is obtained depending on the velocity and compressibility of the lighter liquid. Hence, as in compressible flow, liquid–liquid flow has a maximum combined of the flow rate (both phases). This maximum is known as double choking phenomenon. The reverse way is referred to the process where the starting point is high flow rate and the flow rate is decreasing. As in many fluid mechanics and magnetic fields, the return path is not move the exact same way. There is even a possibility to return on different flow regime. For example, flow that had slug flow in its path can be returned as stratified wavy flow. This phenomenon is refer to as hysteresis. Flow that is under small angle from the horizontal will be similar to the horizontal flow. However, there is no consensus how far is the “near” means. Qualitatively, the “near” angle depends on the length of the pipe. The angle decreases with the length of the pipe. Besides the length, other parameters can affect the “near.”

The results of the above discussion are depicted in Figure 9.5. As many things in multiphase, this map is only characteristics of the “normal” conditions, e.g. in normal gravitation, weak to strong surface tension effects (air/water in “normal” gravity), etc. Vertical Flow

The vertical flow has two possibilities, with the gravity or against it. In engineering application, the vertical flow against the gravity is more common used. There is a difference between flowing with the gravity and flowing against the gravity. The buoyancy

is acting in two different directions for these two flow regimes. For the flow against gravity, 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. The opposite is for the flow with gravity. Thus, there are different flow regimes for these two situations. 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. Flow Against Gravity For vertical flow against gravity, the flow cannot start as a stratified flow. The heavier liquid has to occupy almost the entire cross section before it can flow because of the gravity forces. Thus, the flow starts as a bubble flow. The increase of the lighter liquid flow rate will increase the number of bubbles until some bubbles start to collide. When many bubbles collide, they create a large bubble and the flow is referred to as slug flow or plug flow (see Figure 9.6). Notice, the different mechanism in creating the plug flow in horizontal flow compared to the vertical flow. Further increase of lighter liquid flow rate will increase the slug size as more bubbles collide to create “super slug”; the flow regime is referred as elongated bubble flow. The flow is less stable as more turbulent flow and several “super slug” or churn flow appears in more chaotic way, see Figure 9.6. After additional increase of “super slug” , all these “elongated slug” unite to become an annular flow. Again, it can be noted the difference in the mechanism that create annular flow for vertical and horizontal flow. Any further increase transforms the outer liquid layer into bubbles in the inner liquid. Flow of near vertical against the gravity in two–phase does not deviate from vertical. The choking can occur at any point depends on the fluids and temperature and pressure.



The above discussion mostly explained the Dispersed Dispersed flow in a vertical configuration when the Bubble Bubble surface tension can be neglected. In cases where the surface tension is very important. Pulsing For example, out in space between gas and liquid (large density difference) the situaPulsing & Bubbling tion is different. 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 liquid flows through Gas Flow Rage a trickle or channeled flow that only partially wets part of the tube. The interaction between the phases is minimal and can be Fig. -9.7. A dimensional vertical flow map considered as the “open channel flow” of under very low gravity against the gravity. the vertical configuration. As the gas flow increases, the liquid becomes more turbulent and some parts enter into the gas phase as drops. When the flow rate of the gas increases further, all the gas phase change into tiny drops of liquid and this kind of regime referred to as mist flow. At a higher rate of liquid flow and a low flow rate of gas, the regime liquid fills the entire void and the gas is in small bubble and this flow referred to as bubbly flow. In the medium range of the flow rate of gas and liquid, there is pulse flow in which liquid is moving in frequent pulses. The common map is based on dimensionless parameters. Here, it is presented in a dimension form to explain the trends (see Figure 9.7). In the literature, Figure 9.7 presented in dimensionless coordinates. The abscissa is a function of combination of Froude ,Reynolds, and Weber numbers. The ordinate is a combination of flow rate ratio and density ratio. Flow With The Gravity As opposed to the flow against gravity, this flow can starts with stratified flow. A good example for this flow regime is a water fall. The initial part for this flow is more significant. Since the heavy liquid can be supplied from the “wrong” point/side, the initial part has a larger section compared to the flow against the gravity flow. After the flow has settled, the flow continues in a stratified configuration. The transitions between the flow regimes is similar to stratified flow. However, the points where these transitions occur are different from the horizontal flow. While this author is not aware of an actual model, 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.
Liquid Flow Rate

9.6 Multi–Phase Flow Variables Definitions
Since the gas–liquid system is a specific case of the liquid–liquid system, both will be united in this discussion. However, for the convenience of the terms “gas and liquid” will be used to signify the lighter and heavier liquid, respectively. The liquid–liquid (also



gas–liquid) flow is an extremely complex three–dimensional transient problem since the flow conditions in a pipe may vary along its length, over its cross section, and with time. To simplify the descriptions of the problem and yet to retain the important features of the flow, some variables are defined so that the flow can be described as a one-dimensional flow. This method is the most common and important to analyze two-phase flow pressure drop and other parameters. Perhaps, the only serious missing point in this discussion is the change of the flow along the distance of the tube.


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 ˙ ˙ ˙ (9.1)

It is common to define the mass velocity instead of the regular velocity because the “regular” velocity changes along the length of the pipe. The gas mass velocity is GG = mG ˙ A (9.2)

Where A is the entire area of the tube. It has to be noted that this mass velocity does not exist in reality. The liquid mass velocity is GL = The mass flow of the tube is then G= m ˙ A (9.4) mL ˙ A (9.3)

It has to be emphasized that this mass velocity is the actual velocity. 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 (9.6) GG = UsG ρG (9.5)

For liquid with very high bulk modulus (almost constant density), the volumetric flow rate can be considered as constant. The total volumetric volume vary along the tube length and is Q = QL + QG (9.7)



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 (9.8)

In a similar fashion, the value of (1 − X) is referred to as the “wetness fraction.” The last two factions remain constant along the tube length as long the gas and liquid masses remain constant. 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 (9.9)

This fraction is vary along tube length since the gas density is not constant along the tube length. The liquid fraction or liquid holdup is LH = 1 − α = AL A (9.10)

It must be noted that Liquid holdup, LH is not constant for the same reasons the void fraction is not constant. The actual velocities depend on the other phase since the actual cross section the phase flows is dependent on the other phase. Thus, a superficial velocity is commonly defined in which if only one phase is using the entire tube. The gas superficial velocity is therefore defined as UsG = The liquid superficial velocity is UsL = GL (1 − X) m ˙ = = QL ρL ρL A (9.12) GG Xm ˙ = = QG ρG ρG A (9.11)

Since UsL = QL and similarly for the gas then Um = UsG + UsL (9.13)

Where Um is the averaged velocity. It can be noticed that Um is not constant along the tube. The average superficial velocity of the gas and liquid are different. Thus, the ratio of these velocities is referred to as the slip velocity and is defined as the following SLP = UG UL (9.14)

Slip ratio is usually greater than unity. Also, it can be noted that the slip velocity is not constant along the tube.


CHAPTER 9. MULTI–PHASE FLOW For the same velocity of phases (SLP = 1), the mixture density is defined as ρm = α ρG + (1 − α) ρL (9.15)

This density represents the density taken at the “frozen” cross section (assume the volume is the cross section times infinitesimal thickness of dx). The average density of the material flowing in the tube can be evaluated by looking at the definition of density. The density of any material is defined as ρ = m/V and thus, for the flowing material it is ρ= m ˙ Q (9.16)

Where Q is the volumetric flow rate. Substituting equations (9.1) and (9.7) into equation (9.16) results in
mG ˙ mL ˙

ρaverage =

˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ ˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ = ˙ X m (1 − X) m ˙ QG + QL + ρG ρL


Equation (9.17) 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

ρaverage =

X (1 − X) + = X vG + (1 − X) vL ρG ρL


The relationship between X and α is


mG ˙ ρG UG A α ρG UG α = = (9.20) mG + mL ˙ ˙ ρL UL A(1 − α) +ρG UG A α ρL UL (1 − α) + ρG UG α

If the slip is one SLP = 1, thus equation (9.20) becomes X= ρG α ρL (1 − α) + ρG α (9.21)

Thus. the simplest is to used it for approximation. it was assumed that the different flow regimes can be neglected at least for the pressure loss (not correct for the heat transfer). it was assumed that the flow is continuous.

Consequently. the case of liquid. in many cases the middle region is applicable.9. In the literature there are many functions for various conditions.53) When the subscript α is indicating the void. In that case.

9.2 Solid With Lighter Density ρS < ρ and With Gravity This situation is minimal and very few cases exist. The buoyancy is accelerating the particle . several conclusions and/or expectations can be drawn. Furthermore.280 CHAPTER 9. this limitation does not (effectively) exist for most cases of solid–liquid flow. Nevertheless. The flow is fully fluidized for any liquid flow rate. The issue of minimum terminal velocity is not exist and therefor there is no fixed or mixed fluidized bed. it must be pointed out that even in solid–gas.8. There is no known flow map for this kind of flow that this author is aware of. The forces that act on the spherical particle are the buoyancy force and drag force. However. There was very little investigations and known about the solid–liquid flowing down (with the gravity). 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). the fluid density can be higher than the solid (especially with micro gravity). -9. In the gas phase. there is very little knowledge about the solid–liquid when the solid density is smaller than the liquid density. The speed of sound of the liquid does not change much. 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). MULTI–PHASE FLOW Fixed Bed Mixed Bed Slug or Plug Flow Turbulent Regimes Fast Fluidization Pneumatic Conveying Fig. Hence. One of the main difference between the liquid and gas flow in this category is the speed of sound. The flow patterns in solid-liquid flow. the length of conduit is very limited. Thus. Hence. 9. The flow can have slug flow but more likely will be in fast Fluidization regime.

In only certain configurations of the infinite long pipes the counter–current flow can exist. COUNTER–CURRENT FLOW and drag force are reducing the speed as 2 281 π D3 g(ρS − ρL ) CD ∞ π D2 ρL (US − UL ) = (9. the pressure difference and Open Channel gravity (body forces) dominates the flow. when cavity is filled or emptied with a liquid. In most cases. Most people know that two holes are needed to empty the can easily and continuously.54) 6 8 From equation 9. the counter–current flow can have opposite pressure gradient for short conduit. Counter–flow in vertical tubes map.54. Liquid Body Foreces . Further increase of the liquid velocity appear as somewhat similar to slug flow. Flow The inertia components of the flow. it can observed that increase of the liquid velocity will increase the solid particle velocity at the same amount. The affective body force “seems” by the particles can be in some cases larger than the gravity. 9. For example. For example. Thus. However. UL /US → 0. physical properties) positive while the pressure difference in the other phase can be negative. Annular Extented Flow In that case.9. for large velocity of the fluid it can be observed that UL /US → 1. for a small fluid velocity the velocity ratio is very large. some of the particles enter into the liquid core. the possibility to have counter–current flow is limited to having short length of tubes. Otherwise. cannot compensate for the Flow pressure gradient. the flow will be in a pulse regime. be finite. The solid–liquid horizontal flow has some similarity to horizontal gas–liquid flow. Typically if only one hole is opened on the top of the can. However. The counter-current flow occurs. This kind of flow is probably the most common to be realized by the masses. for example. the heavy phase (liquid) is pushed by the gravity and lighter phase (gas) is driven by the pressure difference. In short tube. The flow regimes will be similar but the transition will be in different points. the liquid will flow in pulse regime. Initially the solid particles will be carried by the liquid to the top. -9. opening a can of milk or juice. But in most cases. for Pulse Flow Inpossible long tubes.9. The two phase regimes “occurs” mainly in entrance to the cavity. Hence. The pressure difference in the interface must Fig. When the liquid velocity increase and became turbulent. this author have not seen any evidence that show the annular flow does not appear in solid–liquid flow.9 Counter–Current Flow This discussion will be only on liquid–liquid systems (which also includes liquid-gas systems). the or Dripping Flow pressure difference in one phase can be f (D/L.10.

There are more things to be examined and to be studied. It also can be noticed that if there is one hole (orifice) and a long and narrow tube. Then. If there are two holes.). -9. . This is opposed to counter–current solid–gas flow when almost no pulse was observed. The upper compartment is filled with the heavy phase (liquid. elongated pulse flow was observed but measured. it can be noticed that the solid–gas is faster than the liquid–gas flow. liquid flows through one hole and the air through the second hole and the flow will be continuous. There must be other flow regimes that were not observed or defined. the heavy liquid is leaving the can. Figure 9. Counter–current flow in a can (the left figure) has only one hole thus pulse flow and a flow with two holes (right picture). the phases flow turns into different direction (see Figure 9. There are three flow regimes10 that have been observed. the pressure in the can increase. Then the pressure in the can is reduced compared to the outside and some lighter liquid (gas)entered into the can. The first flow pattern is pulse flow regime. Initially. in some cases. -9.282 CHAPTER 9. MULTI–PHASE FLOW Fig. water solution. due to the gravity. In this flow regime.11.

The name pulse flow is used to signify that the flow is flowing in pulses that occurs in a certain frequency. This field hasn’t been well explored. Even though the solid–gas ratio is smaller.12). 10 Caution! this statement should be considered as “so far found”. Fig. The air is “attempting” to enter the cavity to fill the vacuum created thus forcing pulse flow.11 depicts emptying of can filled with liquid.12. For example. the liquid will stay in the cavity (neglecting other phenomena such as dripping flow.

9. However. there are someFlow one who claims that heavy liquid will be inside). In horizontal tubes. This situation is unstable for large diameter but as in static (see section (4. In very small Steam Flow diameters of tubes the counter–current flow is not possible because of the surface tension (see section 4. In many situations. When the driving (body) force is very small. The analysis of the frequency is much more complex issue and will not be dealt here. The heavy liquid will flow with the body forces (gravity).7). 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. Flood in vertical pipe. the discussion was focused on the vertical tubes. flow with gravity or against it. 9. Probably.7) page 133) it can be considered stable for small diameters. At this point. Horizontal flow is different from vertical flow from the stability issues. This process continue until almost the liquid is evacuated (some liquid stay due the surface tension). As opposed to the co–current flow. Extended open channel flow retains the characteristic of open channel that the lighter liquid (almost) does not effect the heavier liquid flow. no counter–current flow possible. -9. COUNTER–CURRENT FLOW 283 and some heavy liquid will starts to flow. . the counter–current flow has no possibility for these two cases. if the can was on the sun (ignoring the heat transfer issue). but somehow it contradicts with the experimental evidence. the volume flow rate of the two phase is almost equal. Additional increase of the diameter will change the flow regime into extended open channel flow. The cycle duration can be replaced by frequency. Thus it should be considered as non existent flow.” In the vertical co–current flow there are two possibilities. the pulsing flow will start and larger diameter will increase the flow and turn the flow into annular 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. A heavier liquid layer can flow above a lighter liquid.9. there is an additional flow regime which is stratified .13. Further increase of the body force will move the flow to be in the extended “open channel flow. one or more of the assumptions that the analysis based is erroneous). Consider the can in zero gravity field.1 Horizontal Counter–Current Flow Up to this point.9. The duration the cycle depends on several factors. The analysis is provided. the flow regime in the can moves from pulse to annular flow. A flow in a very narrow tube with heavy fluid above the lighter fluid should be considered as a separate issue. length with some combinations of the physical properties (surface tension etc) determines the point where the counter flow can start. The ratio of the diameter to the Fig. no counter–current flow is possible.

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. horizontal counter–current flow. QL . Additionally. coexist. mass transfer. When there is no water (in liquid phase). 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). The flow map of the horizontal flow is different f (D/L.2 Flooding and Reversal Flow The limits of one kind the counter–current flow regimes. The liquid velocity at very low gas velocity is constant but not uniform.14. To analyze this situation consider a two dimensional conduit with a liquid inserted in the left side as depicted in Figure 9. . Fig. The flow will change to pulse flow when the heavy liquid flow rate increases. the flow will be stratified counter–current flow. etc11 . this increase terminates the two phase flow possibility. 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 9.

Thus.IX.A. the linear third-order differential equation” Springer Berlin Heidelberg.b) (1.91) The solution is assumed to be of the form of est which general third order polonium.c) A.IX.a) √ 3 u √ du 3 k1 − u3 √ = t + k2 2 u √ du 3 k − u3 √1 = t + k2 2 (1.89) Further rearrangement and integration leads to the solution which is u2 = t + k2 2 k1 For non–homogeneous equation they can be integrated as well. Solution to more complicate linear equations with non constant coefficient (function of t) can be solved sometimes by Laplace transform or reduction of the equation to second order Olivier Vallee8 .6 Third Order Differential Equation There are situations where fluid mechanics7 leads to third order differential equation.

When the discriminant . Normally. . 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. when the discriminant is zero the equation are called parabolic. Generally. Note that ∂x partial derivative also include mix of derivatives such as ux y. As one might expect PDE are harder to solve.111) Where subscripts refers to derivative based on it. this characterization is done for for second order. the same can be done for a second-order PDE. . The meaning for initial conditions is that of solution depends on some early points of the flow (the solution). The physical meaning of the these definition is that these equations have different characterizations. the PDE solution is done by transforming the PDE to one or more ODE. Generally. Many situations in fluid mechanics can be described by PDE equations. The nature of the solution is based whether the equation is elliptic parabolic and hyperbolic. Equation (A.A.113) In the same manner that conic geometry equations are classified are based on the discriminant a2 − 4 axx ayy . One example of such equation is heat equation.3. . sometimes similar definition can be applied for other order. ux = ∂u .2. However. ayy might depend upon ”x” and ”y”. PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 319 A. The hyperbolic equations are associated with method of characteristics because physical situations depends only on the initial conditions.

Partial differential equations are categorized by the order of highest derivative.) = 0 (A.3 Partial Differential Equations Partial Differential Equations (PDE) are differential equations which include function includes the partial derivatives of two or more variables. The disxy criminant can be function of the x and y and thus can change sign and thus the characteristic of the equation.

However. The equations that not mentioned above are elliptic which appear in ideal flow and subsonic flow and sub critical open channel flow.114) The interpretation the equation characteristic is complicated.. If it turned that assumption is wrong the ratio is not constant.118) Equations (A. the constant is denoted as λ and with this definition the PDE is reduced into two ODE. In fluid mechanics this kind equation appear in supersonic flow or in supper critical flow in open channel flow.118) are ODE that can be solved with the methods described before for certain boundary condition. the physics dictates this character and will be used in the book. .119) (A.

An example of first order equation is ∂u ∂u + =0 ∂x ∂y (A.117) can exist is that these two term equal to a constant. ∂x ∂x (A.116) Rearranging equation (A. Is it possible that these terms not equal to a constant? The answer is no if the assumption of the solution is correct. Hence.3.
