Hydrodynamic aspects of oscillating flow through porous media consisting of steel spheres
MetadataShow full item record
Hydrodynamic aspects of oscillating flow through porous media are investigated within the scope of this experimental work where water is used as the flow medium. Friction factors are found reducing the data of hydrodynamic experiments for oscillating flows. The experimentally determined maximum friction factors for oscillating flow are represented as correlations. They are then compared to those obtained by the other researchers. The results can readily be used in the design of cryogenic coolers and heat exchangers where pressure drop; thus, hydraulic losses are of primary importance. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.
