CFD Simulation of Two-Phase Flow in a Downhole Venturi Meter
This work performs an oil-water two-phase flow simulation in a downhole Venturi meter to investigate the flow field and pressure characteristics with different flow and oil-water ratios. The relation between the pressure drop and the feed flow rate in the flowmeter is investigated for its optimal design.
