Why is understanding choked flow crucial for CO2 capture, transport and storage?
If we are to design and operate CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) systems efficiently and safely, we need to know more about CO2’s choked flow – that is, its maximum flow rate through valves, holes or other restrictions. This has been the subject of a new paper: Experiments and modelling of choked flow of CO2 in orifices and nozzles.
