The wires connect to your house at a vertical pipe, called a weather head, and the lines dip close to that so any rainwater can drip off before the line carries power down to the meter box.
Under postulated accident conditions such as loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCAs) in pressurized water reactors (PWRs), steam and condensate water form countercurrent flows in a hot leg (consisting of a horizontal pipe, a 50-deg vertical elbow, and a short inclined pipe) and a pressurizer surge line (consisting of a slightly inclined pipe with elbows, a vertical elbow, and a vertical pipe), and flooding may occur.
Principal metallurgist at the Health and Safety ExecutiveWilliam Geary said he examined the vertical pipe and an associated 15millimetre elbow piece in his laboratory.
Instead of the boiler room found in Figures 2 and 3, imagine that location represents a vertical pipe shaft with a boiler either in the basement below or on the roof above.
Researchers investigate bubbling behavior in a waste glass melter, the aerodynamic response of 2D circular segments, the drift velocity of two-phase slug flow in a vertical pipe, and pipe vibrations in gas pressure reducing stations.
In 1952, the researcher Poettmann-Carpenter of Phillips Petroleum published an article which discussed the application of the multiphase vertical pipe flow in the gas lift operation design (Poettman and Carpenter, 1952).
[8] investigated the isothermal flow of ice slurry in vertical pipe and obtained the distribution of concentration and velocity of ice particles in the ice slurry.
Open to first year undergraduates from 20 UK universities, the challenge saw students tasked with designing and creating a small device to carry an increasing load up a 2.5m vertical pipe. This had to be achieved within strict specifications and a budget of only PS20.
A post-mortem examination found that Conley died after becoming stuck in the vertical pipe. South Yorkshire Police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
Deborah added: "We know he's got through a small hole in top of the site, and because it's been wet he's slid and gone into a vertical pipe.
"I'm stood next to the place where he died and I'm thinking, 'What the hell were you doing, Conley, in a place like this?'" Speaking about how Conley got trapped in the pipe, she said: "He apparently got in at the top and slid down and went into a vertical pipe, and he must have died trying to get out.
