Abstract

The performance of a horizontal liquid-air ejector system was greatly enhanced by creating mixing shock. Principles of macroscopic momentum and energy balances were employed to define an overall loss factor which was found to be a useful correlating parameter in the case of homogeneous bubble flow. Empirical correlations are proposed to predict mass ratio as a function of different parameters.

Abstract

On a bien amélioré le rendement d'un système horizontal d'éjection de liquide et d'air en créant le choc du mélange. On a employé les principes de force vive macroscopique et d'équilibre d'énergie pour définir un facteur de perte globale qui s'est avéré un paramètre utile de corrélation dans le cas d'un écoulement homogène de bulles. On propose des corrélations empiriques pour prédire le rapport de masse en fonction de différents paramètres.
