A Review on Multiphase Models and Multiphase Flow Problems at Different Flow Sections

Authors(3) :-Atul Singh, S. K. Bharti, N. V. Saxena

Multiphase flow is a common phenomenon in many industrial processes, amongst them the oil and gas industry. In multiphase flow different phases are present like solid, liquid and gases. Different models are available for the study of different flow field according to the applications. Multiphase flow introduces different flow models like euler-euler model, lagrangian model , volume of fluid model etc. these models are used in different fluid flows according to present and distribution of phases. Euler –Euler model is best suitable model for pipe flow problems in implicit initial conditions. For sedimentation related problems euler- euler model is best suitable model. In this present work a brief survey is done on multiphase flow and different multiphase model for implicit conditions and somewhere found that euler – euler model is most adoptable model in most of the multiphase flow problems.
