Multiphase Flow Laboratory
The Multiphase Flow Laboratory serves fundamental studies related to transport of oil-water-gas mixtures in pipes. Several test sections (3-6 cm I.D., 17 long, 7 m high) are instrumented with impedance probes, pressure censors and moving camera for characterization of steady and transient flow conditions. The loop is automated and is available for remote operation through a web site (NetLab).
A transportable mini-loop is available for flow visualization. The mini-lop is a useful instrument for student exercises, and for demonstrations during lectures.
