ON ISSUE OF CALCULATIONS OF LIQUID-GAS OBSTRUCTION STRUCTURES PASSING FREQUENCY IN FIELD PIPELINES
Vasil’ev Dmitrii Sergeevich Kuban State Technological University
Abstract. Owing to the great influence of hydrocarbon streams structures transported through pipes on the safe operation of field oil and gas pipelines, dependences and formulas, which are based on the results of conducted experiments and allow calculating obstruction mode parameters that are interesting for engineers, are developed. In this article the methods of the calculation of liquid-gas obstruction structures passing frequency in the pipeline, which give satisfactory results in relation to accuracy, are shown.
