 July 25, 2007, 12:11 Estimating pressure drop from the shear stresses #1 K.Baker Guest   Posts: n/a Hi to all : I have a two phase pipe flow I predicted the shear stresses at the wall and at the interface by using report surface integrals but now i need to estimate the pressure drop from these values and i have no idea to how can I did this ? Is there any relation between the pressure drop and the shear stresses can i predict by it the pressure drop? Thanks to any suggestions K.Baker

I am looking for somebody capable to explain me the link between the BLASIUS Law for friction in homogeneous two phase flow in pipe and the drag coeficient which is proposed in fluent. Is it possible to get some data with fluent??? Sorry i am just a beginner, hoping that my question will interested you. bye

Hope my commend about your enquiry be useful. K.Baker
