Identification Of Two Phase Flow Regime Using Acoustic Emission Technology

In two phase flow horizontal pipelines, there is a great importance on flow regime recognition in industrial processing and transporting. Different flow regimes induce different performances of the system. The prediction of the flow regime transitions is difficult due to the highly non-linear nature of the forces that rule the flow. This experimental study looks into the application of Acoustic Emission (AE) technology to recognize flow regimes in two phase (gas/liquid) flow. Kolmogorov–Smirnov (KS-test) was used to distinguish AE captured signals. The results show the applicability and effectiveness of this method to detect and recognize two phase flow regimes.
