The comparison of Two Approaches for Calculation of the Force Interaction of the TwoPhase Flow with Tube Bundle
The comparison of the two different approaches for simulation of the force interaction of the two-phase flow with the external surfaces is presented in the paper. The two-velocity two-phase flow model was developed for calculation of the two-phase pressure drop for the cross flow across tube bundle. The pressure drops across tube bundle were calculated with this model using two different approaches for simulation of the two-phase flow drag with the tube bundle. The calculated results were compared with the experimental ones. The best approach for simulation of the two-phase flow drag with the tube bundle based on the empirical two-phase flow hydraulic resistance correlations was identified.
