Abstract

The flow visualization and image processing is made to clarify the effects of nonuniform magnetic field on the characteristics of boiling two-phase pipe flow of temperature sensitive magnetic fluid. The aspect of the two-phase flow is visualized with ultrasonic wave echo in the region of axial and transverse nonuniform magnetic field. As a result, the effect of the magnetic field on the vapor bubble behavior and the distribution of void fraction in the two-phase flow are clarified. Furthermore, the effect of magnetic field on the stability of boiling two-phase pipe flow of magnetic fluid is inspected by using the visualization technique with ultrasonic wave echo. These fundamental studies represent that the precise control and stabilization of boiling two-phase flow of magnetic fluid are possible by using the magnetic force of the fluid effectively. It seems to be reasonable that the stabilization of boiling two-phase flow is possible by using the magnetic force effectively.
