The Flow of Complex Mixtures in Pipes

: Society of Petroleum Engineers
While single-phase flow in pipes is reasonably well understood, designing pipelines for new-Newtonian and multiphase flows is still a challenge. Models of varying degrees of complexity have been developed, and many thousands of publications have appeared; however, reliable predictions of pressure drop, flow pattern, and holdup are not always possible. In this book, we attempt to present a unified approach to all types of complex flows in pipes. The discussion of various topics starts with the underlying fundamentals and concludes with recommended design methods. Thirty-five years after its first publication, this book remains a fundamental resource for researchers and practicing engineers alike.
