Abstract

Experimental data are presented for the mass flow rate and quality of two-phase (air-water) discharge through a small orifice (6.35 mm i.d.) located on the side of a large reservoir under stratified conditions. These data correspond to different values of the interface level between the onsets of gas and liquid entrainments for test-section pressures ranging from 316 to 517 kPa, test-section-to-separator pressure differences ranging from 40 to 235 kPa, and different hydraulic resistances of the line connecting the test section and separator. Influences of these independent variables on the mass flow rate and quality are discussed and normalized plots are presented showing that the data can be collapsed for a wide range of conditions. Comparisons made with previous investigations show good agreement with some existing correlations.
