Tangential stress in the descending flow of a turbulent film and a gas

  • 11 Accesses


The relationship between the pressure gradient and the tangential stress at the wall of the tube and at the interface is established. The tangential stress is found experimentally as a function of the Reynolds numbers of the two phases.
