two-phase flow

[′tü ¦fāz ′flō]
(cryogenics)
Flow of helium II, or of electrons in a superconductor, thought of as consisting of two interpenetrating, noninteracting fluids, a superfluid component which exhibits no resistance to flow and is responsible for superconducting properties, and a normal component, which behaves as does an ordinary fluid or as conduction electrons in a nonsuperconducting metal.
(fluid mechanics)
Cocurrent movement of two phases (for example, gas and liquid) through a closed conduit or duct (for example, a pipe).

Two-phase mixture model which was first mentioned by Wang and Beckermann [7] uses mixture variables to reduce the number of partial differential equations (PDEs) of classical two-phase fluid flow formulations in porous media.
To study gas--liquid two-phase coupling seepage, the saturation of gas and liquid, and gas solubility are only consider, with no regard of source-sink, and changes of temperature, the two-phase fluid flow is in line with Darcy's law.
The pressure-implicit with splitting of operators (PISO) pressure-velocity coupling scheme was used to calculate the transient two-phase fluid flow, and the iterative time step is set to [10.sup.-6] S to ensure the accurate results of crater formation.
Presented research was dedicated to Modeling and Numerical Analysis of the Two-Phase fluid flow through porous medium with the purpose to develop technique of determining pore size distribution in semi-permeable membranes.
