the modelling of surface processes such as corrosion and scaling in the
oil and gas industry, the nature of the multiphase pipe-flow plays an
important role. In oil wells,
the fluid consists of a combination of water, oil and gas.
model scale and corrosion, it is necessary to estimate the area of wall
in contact with the water, which is a parameter known as water-wetting.
Previous studies have shown
challenges with both the Euler-Euler approach and the Volume-of-Fluid,
suggesting that better modelling with Euler-Euler would likely yield the
The project involve:
Modelling of Oil and Water Pipe-Flow with the Euler-Euler Two-Fluid Model
Testing various Drag and lift Models
Implementing Droplet Size Distribution Models
Validating against Experimental Work from Literature
Quantifying Water-Wetting Using Dimensional Analysis
