J. Buongiorno / Spring 2007 Question 2 – Conservation Equations for Two-phase Flow The boiler of a coal-fired power plant consists of a tube bundle surrounding the combustion chamber. The tubes are vertical (10-m length) and round (2-cm inner diameter). The operating conditions for the boiler are as follows: Pressure: 10 MPa (corresponding to a saturation temperature of 311 ° C) Water inlet temperature: 300 ° C Water mass flow rate (per tube): 0.57 kg/s Wall heat flux: 300 kW/m 2 (axially and circumferentially constant) 2.1 Write the steady-state mixture mass, momentum and energy conservation equations for a
