Abstract

The boiling two-phase flow pressure-drop type oscillations in a vertical channel system have been studied both experimentally and theoretically. In the experimental study. The steady-state characteristics of the system pressure-drop versus mass flow rate and stability boundaries are determined. In the bifurcation analysis, a planar system is formulated for pressure-drop type oscillations in a single-channel boiling system, and pressure-drop type oscillation are analysed from the perspective of dynamical system theory. The limit cycles and the periods of the pressure-drop type oscillations obtained from the model agree well with experimental results.
