Pipeline Design and Selection. Optimum Pipeline Diameter

At this flow pattern in the pipeline, the flow can be single-phase (full pipe) and two-phase (partial filling). A two-phase flow is formed in case if fluid and gas are simultaneously present in the pipe. Dependent on a fluid-to-gas ratio and associated velocities, a two-phase flow regime may vary from a bubble flow to a dispersed flow.
