flow factor

flow cone

A device for measuring grout consistency; after a predetermined volume of grout is permitted to flow through an orifice of known size, the time of efflux (called the flow factor) is an indication of the consistency.

5 shows how the volumes of both phases are distributed in the stream in such a way that the vapor phase separation takes place in the upper part of the nozzle orifice, which narrows the actual flow intersection of the main stream and reduces the flow factor of the nozzle [18].

In other words, the water phase permeability [k.sub.1], non-Darcy flow factor [[beta].sub.1], and acceleration coefficient [c.sub.al] were the functions of the volume fraction [Y.sub.1], and the sand phase permeability [k.sub.2], non-Darcy flow factor [[beta].sub.2], and acceleration coefficient [c.sub.a2] were the functions of the volume fraction [Y.sub.2].

Finally, a hierarchical model consisting of one global flow factor and nine first-order factors, which suggests that there are nine dimensions influenced by a single underlying process, was postulated and tested (Moneta, 2012), as well as a nine factor model that proposes flow as nine separate dimensions with no underlying global process.
