ABSTRACT: This report describes test facilities for the investigation of two-phase flows. These facilities were developed under Phase I and built under Phase II of a DOT sponsored program entitled “SAFETY VALVE STUDY” which is being carried out at the University of Maryland, Department of Mechanical Engineering. The test facility completed to this date consists of the Blow-Down Test Apparatus and the Bubble and Slug Flow Tunnel. It is the purpose of the test facilities to support, test, and aid in the development of safety valve sizing equations when different two-phase regimes occur.
