21 November 1997 Investigation of liquid/liquid flows using laser-based optical systems
Author Affiliations +
A liquid/liquid system has been used to model high pressure gas/liquid systems. Kerosene and aqueous potassium carbonate solution have been chosen for his purpose. An experimental facility has been constructed in which horizontal and vertical liquid/liquid flows can be investigated. The main objective of the work is to gather information about the drop size distributions of the dispersed aqueous phase which is important for modeling such flows. Two different optical system were employed in horizontal and vertical flow positions. Laser results obtained for various flow conditions have been compared with the existing data.
