Investigation of unsteady leakage of a boiling liquid in the thermodynamic equilibrium approximation
Abstract
A method is described for investigating unsteady undulatory leakage of a saturated liquid from a ruptured highpressure pipeline. The motion of the liquidvapor mixture is described via a homogeneous model of a onevelocity saturated stream. The initial differential equations are transformed to a form that can be conveniently integrated by a finite difference scheme with maximum computertime savings. The method is used to compute leakage of saturated water at high temperature and pressure from a ruptured pipeline.
