This notebook is intended to give a first introduction to multifluid flows through the use of "model" flow regimes calculated from exact solutions for laminar flow in different configurations. By comparing pressure drop over a range of flow rates for these different configurations, that show differences of factors of up to 30, the importance of knowing the flow regime is demonstrated. Insight into the physical reasons for the variation in pressure drop with flow rates and physical properties is given.
