Computational simulation of high speed steady homogeneous two-phase flow in complex piping systems.


Journal Article

A study was undertaken to predict steady flow conditions in two-phase steam/water flows in safety/relief discharge piping systems. The approach can also accommodate single phase flows of superheated system of subcooled liquid. Subroutines were developed to simulate flows through isentropic area changes, abrupt area changes, adiabatic constant area pipes with friction, valves, two-phase shock waves, and mass addition at pipe junctions. Sample calculations which treat both sifgle line and multiple-branch piping systems are included. (from authors' abstract)
