An experimental study was performed in stratified wavy flow of air and water through a horizontal pipe. The velocity fields in both phases were measured simultaneously using PIV and the interfacial shape was resolved using a profile capturing technique. The objective of the study was to investigate the interfacial characteristics and the...

The growing demand for energy in the future will necessitate the production of natural gas from fields which are located farther offshore, in deep water and in very cold environments. This will confront us with difficulties in ensuring continuous production of the fluids (natural gas, condensate and water) emerging from a natural gas well. Often...

The technique for obtaining detailed velocity fields in a wavy liquid layer in stratified air/water pipe flow is described in this paper. By combining Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) with an interface detection technique, the velocity field is resolved in the whole liquid layer. Furthermore, since the shape of the interface is resolved at each...
