RESUMO

This contribution summarizes the results of the multi-phase flow physical benchmarking exercises arising from the Workshops on Two-Phase Flow Fundamentals organized under the auspices of US Department Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). A central objective of these Workshops was to devise and approve experimental Data Sets and Numerical Benchmark Tests against which modelling methods could be evaluated. The first eighteen experimental Data Sets were published in Vol. 3 of Multiphase Science and Technology and a further 12 Data Sets are published in Vol. 6 (pp.145−519). These data provide valuable results for checking predictions.

As part of the Workshops, systematic comparisons were added between a number of Data Sets and available computer codes. The summaries of the basic codes are given in Multiphase Science and Technology, Vol. 6, pp.721−808. Comparisons between predictions and data sets are given for Data Sets No. 1, 4, 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, 16, 18, 21. These results are presented in succession in Multiphase Science and Technology, Vol. 6, pp.5−144.

The contributors to the calculation exercises were as follows:
M. Akimoto, N. Aksan, G. Analytis, M. Andreani, K. E. Carlson, M. Corradini, J. M. Cuta, J. S. Duffield, D. Emmerechts, A. Fritte, G. Friz, S. Gao, M. Giot, A. H. Govan, G. F. Hewitt, M. Hirano, A.
