Two numerical models (CONVAS and PSI-Cell) for analyzing steady non-equilibrium gas-particle flow through a venturi and an orifice plate are discussed. These models are validated by comparing the predictions with experimental data. Utilizing these models, parametric curves for venturis and orifice plates have been generated. Using these curves a methodology has been outlined for designing a two-phase mass flowmeter.
