Title: FLOW REGIME IDENTIFICATION APPARATUS, METHODS, AND SYSTEMS
Abstract:
In some embodiments, an apparatus and a system, as well as a method and article, may operate to determine proximity to fluid flow regime transition zones at a location in an internal fluid flow based on weighting function values in a continuous parameter space associated with the location, and physical parameter values associated with the fluid flow at the location that are determined by at least one of measurement or simulation. Further activity may include operating a controlled device based on the proximity to a selected one of fluid flow regimes defined by the fluid flow regime transition zones. Additional apparatus, systems, and methods are disclosed.
