RESUMO

As part of the activities of the Workshops on Two-Phase Flow Fundamentals (on the auspices of US Department of Energy), a series of numerical benchmark tests were devised against which prediction methods from multiphase flows could be tested. The numerical benchmark tests are described in detail in Vol. 3, Multiphase Science and Technology. In this present volume (Vol. 6), results of comparisons between benchmark tests and predictions from computer codes for multiphase flow are presented. The contributors to the calculation exercises were M. Akimoto, P. S. Black, K. E. Carlson, J. M. Cuta, A. Deguchi, J. S. Duffield, G. Friz, M. Hirano, H. Inoue, A. V. Jones, H. Kamo, D. Kim, J. Liu, R. Nijsing, H. Ninokata, T. Okano, H. Osaki, H. Qin, V. H. Ransom, D. Radosavljevic, J. C. Roussea, I. Shepherd, D. B. Spalding, C. W. Stewart, F. Tanabe, K. Taylor, F. Villasenor, M. C. Walsh, T. Watanabe, Z. Wu and D. L. Youngs. This present paper introduces the history and the nature and rationale of the selected benchmark tests. It was found that the exercise has been very interesting in providing a framework for comparing methods and has shown the importance of ensuring proper numerical validity as an essential condition for success in predicting two-phase systems.
