A Novel Equation for Isothermal Pipe Flow
A newly derived equation for isothermal gas flow in pipes yields improved mass flux predictions
Jung Seob Kim, SK E&C USA, Inc. and Navneet Singh, Bayer CropScience LP
Compressible flow in pipes is common in the chemical process industries (CPI) and is typically associated with density changes in gases that are subjected to pressure variations. Gas flow conditions can be described using an adiabatic or isothermal flow equation. For conservative piping design, the isothermal model is favored, but it overpredicts mass flux through pipes...
