An Example of Averaging Parameters 1 Air and water flow at high pressure (about 80 atmospheres) in a round tube. A slug flow forms. The geometry – cylindrical slugs of gas along the centerline, liquid everywhere else – is shown below. Assume upflow as shown. Assume a single gas velocity and a single liquid velocity apply everywhere. Diameter: 0.01 m Diameter: 0.0071 m 0.02 m 0.08 m Given the following (take phase densities as constants and mass flow rates as time averages). ρ g = 100 kg m - 3 (1) ρ f = 1000 kg m - 3 (2) ˙ m g = 0 . 005 kg s - 1 (3) ˙ m f = 0 . 05 kg s - 1 (4) Assume the gas slugs are coherent, periodic structures – they all travel at the same speed and keep constant distance between one another. Compute the following: 1. Compute the time-averaged flow quality, x . x = ˙ m g ˙ m f + ˙ m g (5) x = 0 . 005 0 . 05 + 0 . 005 (6) x = 0 . 0909 (7) 2. Compute the time-average superficial velocities, { j f } and { j g } . Liquid { j f } = ˙ m f ρ f A (8) { j f } = 4 ˙ m f ρ f πD 2 (9)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
