Mathematical relationships have been developed to describe the pressure deficiencies required for drainage and removal of wetting liquids through the access openings to the interstitial void space for a model comprised of uniform packed solid spheres. Access openings and associated pressure deficiencies are defined in terms of the packing and radius of the spheres, using a circular arc approximation for the liquid-vapor portion of the perimeter of the opening. This allows determination of… CONTINUE READING
