Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.
