Abstract

The results of a study of thermally induced flow oscillations in two phase mixtures are reported. Scaling criteria are presented and the significance of the Drift and of the Phase Change numbers is discussed. The usefulness of a stability plane for analyzing stability boundaries is shown. The predicted results are shown to be in satisfactory agreement with experimental data.
