Air Entrainment in Flowing Water

Owen P. Lamb

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The physical entrainment of a gas by a liquid and the flow of gas-liquid mixtures are phenomena commonly encountered in engineering practice, but avoided or arbitrarily compensated for in theoretical considerations and in design analysis. The progress toward a satisfactory explanation of these phenomena has been hampered by a lack of accurate experimental observations of entrained flows and by the complexity of the theoretical analysis when certain of the physical forces can no longer be neglected.
