The course will establish the principles of flow and heat transfer in gas/liquid systems and the principles of design methods. The course aims the application of the appropriate basic principles, engineering models and equations of multi-phase systems to the analysis of the industrial problems, particularly, in oil & gas technologies. Also this course implies modeling of gas/liquid flow with aid of multiphase flow simulator.
Course Pre-Requisites: CHME300, CHME201
Course Learning Outcomes
- Discriminate flow pattern and hydraulic resistance for typical gas-liquid flows
- Compare the basic principles, engineering models and equations of gas-liquid flows to apply the most relevant for a given situation.
- Simulate the gas/liquid system with aid of multiphase flow simulator.
- Perform basic calculations on pipelines and wellbores.
In this course students will learn about: separated flow; vertical upward flow; horizontal flow; mechanistic multiphase models; bubbly and plug flow; annular flow and flooding; multiphase flow in pipes and pipe fittings; heat transfer with multiphase flow, including boilers and condensers.
