Choked Flow of Fluid Nitrogen with Emphasis on the Thermodynamic Critical Region
The critical discharge of fluids is of interest in a variety of industries: transportation, nuclear power, desalinization, aeronautics, and astronautics, to cite a few. The interest stems primarily from venting requirements and flow measurements, but includes such novel techniques as the production of hydrogen.
