ABSTRACT

In Vol. 6 of Multiphase Science and Technology, extensive comparisons have been presented between experimental Data Sets and with Numerical Benchmark Test with a large variety of computer codes as used for predictions of multiphase flows in industry. Those supplying calculations were asked to also provide a brief summary of the characteristics of the computer codes which were used. The summaries are included in this Volume of Multiphase Science and Technology for completeness. It should be emphasized that the summary refers to the state of the computer codes at the time of the exercises conducted through the Workshop on Two-Phase Fundamentals, namely in the early 1990s. It is to be expected that all the codes described will be further developed in the future. We are grateful to the contributors to these specification exercises who included M. Akimoto, P. S. Black, M. Hirano, H. Inoue, A. V. Jones, H. Kamo, A. Kohsaka, H. Ninokata, R. Nijsing, H. Osaki, V. H. Ransom, J. C. Rousseau, C. W. Stewart, T. Watanabe, D. L. Youngs.
