Abstract

Gas-liquid and liquid vapor-pipe flows in microgravity have been studied for other forty years. The studies were motivated by potential applications for space industries with thermal control of satellites, propellant supply for launchers, waste water treatment for space exploration missions…Beside the applications, microgravity experiments provide unique conditions for highlighting and modeling capillary and inertia effects in the dynamics of two-phase flows. Several results were obtained on the flow pattern characterization, the measurements of void fraction, wall and interfacial shear stress and heat transfer coefficients. A summary of the main results is presented by comparison with ground experiments. Recent results on flow boiling in pipe are also discussed and perspectives for future studies are given.
