Modeling of Two-Phase Flow I Averaging, averaged parameters (2) I Transport equations (2) I Homogeneous equilibrium model (1+) I Separated ﬂow model(s) (1+) I Choked (critical) ﬂow (1+)
Critical Flow I Single-phase critical ﬂow (sound speed) I HEM/SFM critical ﬂow I Thermal equilibrium model I Thermal non-equilibrium models I Recommendation: consult the “Fundamentals of Multiphase Flow” reference on the course homepage, which has a somewhat more detailed discussion of critical ﬂow than does the text.

Motivation for Study Sudden discharge events – pipe breaks, LOCA’s, etc. Relation between p o (upstream pressure, e.g. , in vessel), p b (downstream/back pressure, e.g. , in containment), and ˙ m (mass ﬂow rate) For compressible ﬂow (gases, two-phase ﬂows), there is a p b where ˙ m reaches a maximum. Further decreases in p b do not increase ˙ m further. See Figure 11-24.
Single-Phase Critical Flow Assume: no heat addition, no friction. Mass and momentum equations: ˙ m = ρ VA (1) ˙ m A dV dz = - dp dz (2) Critical ﬂow condition is that ˙ m is a maximum with respect to pressure, so that: d ˙ m dp = 0 (3)

Single-Phase Critical Flow (2) Diﬀerentiate mass equation in p : d ˙ m dp = 0 = VA d ρ dp + ρ A dV dp (4) (since both ρ and V can be functions of pressure) Manipulate momentum equation: dV dp = - A ˙ m (5) Leading to: 0 = VA d ρ dp - ρ A 2 ˙ m (6)
Single-Phase Critical Flow (3) Divide through by A (a constant) and note that ˙ m / A is G : Leading to: 0 = VA d ρ dp - ρ A 2 ˙ m (7) 0 = V d ρ dp - ρ A ˙ m (8) 0 = V d ρ dp - ρ G (9) ρ G = V d ρ dp (10) G = ρ V dp d ρ (11) G 2 = ρ 2 dp d ρ (12)
