Abstract

Both numerical models of gas-liquid two-phase flow: (1) the model of bubble- tracking and boundary element computation of main flow potential fields, and (2) the model of quasi-harmonic potential flow with volume fraction are developed and used to simulate the gas-liquid two-phase flow in a multiphase pump impeller. 1 Introduction The multiphase pumping technology is very important for the development of petroleum engineering, water conservancy project and so on. Up to now, some types of multiphase pumps have been developed through laboratory and field test at abroad, however their design met
