Abstract


This work presents a brief study about mathematical modeling of two-phase flow (liquid + gas), approaching homogeneous phase flows and heterogeneous phase flows, in addition to mathematical modeling of pressure drop in flow restriction through abrupt expansions and abrupt contractions. Also presents a summary of flow patterns main types and a brief study about how the flow velocity influences these patterns.

Keywords
