23.1.1 Multiphase Flow Regimes

Multiphase flow regimes can be grouped into four categories: gas-liquid or liquid-liquid flows; gas-solid flows; liquid-solid flows; and three-phase flows.



Gas-Liquid or Liquid-Liquid Flows


The following regimes are gas-liquid or liquid-liquid flows:

See Figure  23.1.1 for illustrations of these regimes.



Gas-Solid Flows


The following regimes are gas-solid flows:

See Figure  23.1.1 for illustrations of these regimes.



Liquid-Solid Flows


The following regimes are liquid-solid flows:

See Figure  23.1.1 for illustrations of these regimes.



Three-Phase Flows


Three-phase flows are combinations of the other flow regimes listed in the previous sections.
