Scaling of damping induced by bubbly flow across tubes

Abstract : The damping of tubes subjected to two-phase air-water bubbly cross-flow is investigated with the use of an experimental database from several authors. A new definition of damping in stagnant flow is proposed using an extrapolation of the measured values at low dimensionless flow velocities. This approach yields values of damping substantially lower than those currently defined in the literature. They are found to vary continuously with void fraction, within the bubbly flow regime. These data are used to compare several models of the equivalent viscosity of a two-phase mixture. The effect of the flow velocity is then analysed up to fluidelastic instability. It is observed that, using scaling factors based on the characteristics of the liquid phase, fluidelastic effects of bubbly flows are closely related to those known in single-phase flows. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
