Contours of upward velocity of steam.
The flow pattern is far from being axi- symmetrical.
Contours of upward velocity of water.
Note that the water velocities are smaller than the steam velocities, because of inter-phase slip.
The distribution of pressure.
The pressure diminishes with increase in height partly because of gravity and partly to accelerate the steam-water mixture.
