  • This paper presents a model for predicting pressure losses in foams of various expansions and pressures, in pipes of any given diameter, once the foam behavior has been characterized at a single expansion and pressure. The model incorporates a modified form of the power-law viscosity model of foam, which is obtained through the method of volume equalization. Since apparent wall slip contributes significantly to pipe flow of foam, the wall slip also needs to be characterized to enable… CONTINUE READING
