This lesson covers the concept of homogeneous flow theory, a fundamental analytical flow model. It explains the basic assumptions of the model, including the uniform mixing of two fluids moving as a pseudo fluid at the mixture velocity. The lesson also discusses the implications of these assumptions, such as the equality of the inlet void fraction and the insitu void fraction. It further elaborates on the conditions under which the homogeneous flow model is applicable, such as dispersed bubbly flow situations, and the circumstances where it is not applicable, such as rapid acceleration or counter current flows. The lesson concludes with the derivation of the continuity equation, momentum equation, and energy balance equation for homogeneous flow.

- Homogeneous flow theory assumes that two fluids are thoroughly mixed and move as a pseudo fluid at the mixture velocity.
- The model implies that the slip velocity between the two phases is negligible, and both fluids move at the same average velocity.
- The model is applicable in situations like dispersed bubbly flow and not applicable in situations involving rapid acceleration or counter current flows.
- The continuity equation, momentum equation, and energy balance equation for homogeneous flow can be derived using the assumptions of the model.
