Li, Xuan, Yap, Y. F., Goharzadeh, A., Chai, John and Zhang, M. (2017) Modeling of Two-Phase Flow with Deposition in Vertical Pipes. In: Seventh International Conference on Modeling, Simulation, and Applied Optimization - 2017 (ICMSAO'17), 4 - 6 April 2017, UAE. (Submitted)

Deposition is found in many engineering processes,
such as the asphaltene deposition in oil pipelines/wellbores, and biological and chemical foulings in pipes or heat exchangers. These
deposition processes usually occur in a two-phase flow environment. This study develops a model for two-phase flow with deposition in vertical pipes. The model consists of three modules: Fluid Transport, Particle Transport, and Particle Deposition. The Fluid Transport module predicts the fluids’ velocities and pressure. The Particle
Transport module calculates the particle distribution. The Particle Deposition module models the actual attachment of particles onto the
wall. The model is verified against a few limiting cases with analytical solutions. Then, it is validated against experimental data for two-phase flow without deposition. Demonstration of the model for bubbly flow with deposition is performed
