Abstract

A considerable amount of time and dedication have been devoted into the development of an unified non-dimensional random excitation forces (Power Spectrum Density) PSD model of tube bundles into two phase flow conditions. However, any model cannot be used for wide-range two phase flow conditions as random excitation forces depends strongly on a two phase flow regime. Therefore, we have developed a new scaling method for a two phase random excitation force PSD to be applicable for a wide-range of flow conditions. This method has been developed by focusing on the correlation between a two phase pressure loss and two phase turbulence energy. Comparisons of non-dimensional random excitation force PSDs in various conditions scaled by using the developed method, showed a good concordance between the two.
