Time resolved void fraction data and flow pattern information have been obtained for two-phase air/water flows in a small diameter (5 mm) vertical pipe using conductance probes. The time averaged void fractions are seen to agree with values measured using a completely different approach. Analysis of high speed videos reveals that the probability density function (PDF) technique is inadequate for accurately delineating the transition between slug and churn flows but performs better for the churn… CONTINUE READING
