Phase Separation Phenomena Through Tee Junction

Ghosh, Dibyendu (2016) Phase Separation Phenomena Through Tee Junction. MTech thesis.



The current work is an effort to investigate the phase separation phenomenon through a horizontal Tee junction numerically and experimentally for liquid-liquid two phase flow. There are four principal purposes of this work. First objective is to investigate the effect of the inlet mixture velocity on the phase split. Second objective is to identify the effect of inlet volume fraction on the phase split phenomenon. Third objective is to find out the effect of change in diameter of the Tee junction on phase separation. And the last objective is to study the variation in phase split for different set of fluid pairs. Kerosene water, Diesel water and soybean oil water fluid pairs are used to numerically simulate the problem. Experiments have been carried out for 11 mm diameter Tee junction on diesel-water fluid pair.
