Two-Phase Parahydrogen Friction Factor
A method of Interpolation for Φ, the two-phase “friction factor” was developed by Martinelli and Nelson . No considerable improvement over this technique has heretofore been developed and there is a need for better estimates of pressure drop for two-phase systems at pressures above 1 atm. This paper presents a solution to the problem for para-hydrogen for flow with both phases turbulent, based upon the pressure drop for liquid as the single phase.
