Abstract

Abstract This paper analyzes the hydrodynamics near the discharge of a pipe carrying gas and liquid in horizontal stratified flow. It is shown that for high-viscosity liquids, pipe length may have a considerable effect on the transition from the stratified to nonstratified (annular or intermittent) flow pattern. This leads to a flow-pattern map which contains the pipe length as a parameter for this transition boundary.
