AbstractAn experimental study of the supercritical dividing flow in a right-angle, four-branch junction with different channel widths is presented. Lateral-to-mainstream width ratios of 1∶1, 2∶3, and 1∶2 were used to establish the influence of the channel width on the flow distribution. A brief description of the flow characteristics is given. Types I and II flow patterns are confirmed by the experiments in the range of the studied variables. Existing flow distribution models were adapted for… CONTINUE READING
