An appropriate understanding of the hydraulic characteristics of the two-phase flow in the rock fracture network is important in many engineering applications. To investigate the two-phase flow in the fracture network, a study on the two-phase flow characteristics in the intersecting fractures is necessary. In order to describe the two-phase flow in the intersecting fractures quantitatively, in this study, a gas-water two-phase flow experiment was conducted in a smooth 3D model with intersecting fractures. The results in this specific 3D model show that the flow structures in the intersecting fractures were similar to those of the stratified wavy flow in pipes. The nonlinearity induced by inertial force and turbulence in the intersecting fractures cannot be neglected in the two-phase flow, and the Martinelli-Lockhart model is effective for the two-phase flow in intersecting fractures. Delhaye’s model can be adapted for the cases in this experiment. The turbulence of the flow can be indicated by the values of C in Delhaye’s model, but resetting the appropriate range of the values of C is necessary.

An experimental study on the flow rate and atomization characteristics of a new gas–liquid two-phase flow nozzle was carried out to use high-concentration respirable dust in the workplace of high-efficiency sedimentation coal production based on the gas–liquid two-phase flow nozzle technology. The simulation roadway of dust fall in large coal mines was constructed, and the respirable rock dust produced by fully mechanized mining surfaces was chosen as the research object. The effects of humidity on the capture effect of respirable rock dust were analyzed in the experimental study. The results demonstrated that: (1) the distribution range of the particle size of fogdrops declines with the reduction in fogdrops D50, D[3,2] and D[4,3], which are produced by gas–liquid two-phase flow nozzles. (2) The initial ambient humidity in the simulated roadway was 64.8% RH. After the gas–liquid two-phase flow spray was started, the ambient humidity was elevated by 23.2 to 23.5% RH within 840s and tended to be stable and no longer grew after reaching 88.0–88.3% RH. The initial growth rate of the ambient humidity in the simulated roadway was high, and then was gradually slowed down. (3) Humidity is an important factor influencing the collection of respirable dust. The humidity at 10.0 m leeward of the dust-producing point was increased by 19.6% RH, and the sedimentation rate of respirable dust was increased by 6.73%; the two growth rates were 13.1% RH and 9.90% at 20.0 m; 16.4% RH and 15.42% at 30.0 m; 18.4% RH and 11.20% at 40.0 m. In practical applications of the gas–liquid two-phase flow nozzle in coal mining activities, attention shall be paid to not only the influences of its atomization characteristics on the capture effect of respirable dust but also the influences of the flow rate of the nozzle on the humidity of the working surface. Appropriate gas and water supply pressures shall be chosen according to the space and respirable dust concentration on the working surface to realize a better dust removal effect.

Gas–liquid flow in a pipeline is a very common. Slug two-phase flow is dominated in the case of slightly upward flow (+0.25°) and considered to be the comprehensive flow configuration, and can be in close contact with all the other flow patterns. The models of different flow patterns can be unified. Precise prediction of the slug flow is crucial for proper design and operation. In this paper, we develop hydrodynamics unified modeling for gas–liquid two-phase slug flow, and the bubble and droplet entrainment is optimized. For the important parameters (wall and interfacial friction factors, slug translational velocity and average slug length), the correlations of these parameters are optimized. Furthermore, the related parameters for liquid droplet and gas bubble entrainment are given. Accounting for the gas–liquid interface shape, hydrodynamics models, i.e., the flat interface model (FIM) and the double interface model (DIM), of liquid film in the slug body are applied and compared with the experimental data. The calculated results show that the predictions for the liquid holdup and pressure gradient of the DIM agree with experimental data better than those of the FIM. A comparison between the available experimental results and Zhang’s model calculations shows that the DIM model correctly describes the slug dynamics in gas–liquid pipe flow.

Abstract Professor Pavel L. Kirillov has died on October 8th, 2021, on his 95th year after a life as a husband, father, and an internationally renowned scientist, researcher, and educator in the field of nuclear engineering, thermalhydraulics, heat transfer, and two-phase flow. He was a passionate and dedicated in everything, what he has done and leaves an incredible legacy to the profession. He was born on August 20th, 1927 in Russia, and received his M.A.Sc. degree in thermal physics in 1950 (Moscow Power-Engineering Institute (MPEI) (МосковскийЭнергетическйИнститут (МЭИ)), Faculty of Physics and Power Engineering (Физико-ЭнергетическийФакультет), Ph.D. and Doctor of Technical Sciences degrees in 1959 and 1969, respectively. Professor Pavel Leonidovich Kirillov was a respected technical leader, mentor, and friend to innumerable students, researchers, scientists, and engineers, and he will be sadly missed by all, who had the privilege to know him. He was an outstanding contributor in every aspect of his prolific work and career in the true traditions of technical excellence and critical thinking, and his irreplaceable loss is deeply felt worldwide.

This work reviews the transient two-phase flow in porous media with engineering applications in Geotechnics. It initially overviews constitutive relationships, conventional theories, and experiments. Then, corresponding limitations are discussed according to conflicting observations and multiphase interfacial dynamics. Based on those findings, the dynamic nonequilibrium effects were so defined, which could also be abbreviated as dynamic/transient effects. Four advanced theories have already been developed to resolve these effects. This review collects them and discusses their pros and cons. In addition, this work further reviews the state-of-art in terms of experimental methods, influential factors in dynamic/transient effects, and modelling performance, as well as micromodel and numerical methods at pore-scale. Last, the corresponding geotechnical applications are reviewed, discussing their applicability in effective stress, shear strength, and deformation. Finally, the entire review is briefed to identify research gaps in Geotechnics.
