3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Transient flow of subcooled or superheated water from a variable pipe area, using conduction dependent bubble growth. Initial conditions may include variable temperature along pipe length. The bubble growth phase eventually leads to droplets in vapour stage.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Pipe is divided into Lagrangian mesh and the differential equations are replaced by finite difference equations.
