Measuring liquid film thickness in annular two-phase flows by cold neutron imaging

Measuring liquid film thickness in annular two-phase flows by cold neutron imaging An overview of a measurement method for liquid film thickness in annular flows based on cold neutron imaging is given here. Neutron imaging being a non-intrusive, contactless method is attractive option for two-phase flow investigations offering an excellent contrast. It can provide with information at a high spatial resolution on the flow structure, like the thickness of the liquid film in annular flows. The method has been optimized, and its performance, regarding bias, statistical accuracy, upper and lower detection limits, has been thoroughly quantified using computational tools and measurement results. The technique has been developed based on nuclear fuel bundle models; however, it is applicable practically to annular flows in any arbitrary flow channel geometry of interest.
