Liquid Entrainment in Gas
Liquid entrainment in gas has been studied for decades particularly with respect to impact of liquid load on separation vessels; yet there are still gaps in our understanding and predictive capabilities specially at field-like conditions. This presentation will go over some of the challenges and efforts being made to close those gaps along with suggestions for future work.
