On Geurst’s Equations for Inertial Coupling in Two-Phase Flow
Geurst used variational techniques to derive the inertia terms in the momentum equations of the two fluid model for two-phase flow.
This paper compares Geurst’s results with other formulations, examines the significance of various terms, and explores resulting predictions in one-dimensional steady and unsteady flow situations.
