Original Abstract

The article presents a liquid film instability model designed using results of the set of CFD simulations. The governing equations of the model are derived using a linear equation of motion. The stability analysis is carried out by imposing a liquid surface disturbance which growth rate is investigated in dependence on the geometrical and physical configuration. The gas effect parameters, which are decisive variables in the model, are derived using results of the set of CFD simulations of turbulent flow in channel with wavy surface. The agreement between predicted and measured critical gas velocities and wavelengths in dependence on the liquid film thickness is very good.
