A network model for two-fluid, two-phase flow. (English) Zbl 0637.76112
A systematic derivation is given of two-fluid conservation laws on an arbitrary network. These laws are shown to conserve the mass and total energy of the mixture in the network. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate their use.
