Axisymmetric outflow from large vessels
  A model of axisymmetric liquid outflow from large vessels is developed and is used to explain aspects of flow for self-venting and choked outlets. It is shown that for flows with self-venting outlets the model relates the liquid level to the flow. It is also shown that for flow with choked outlets the model gives a conservative estimate for the minimum liquid level required to prevent drawdown of the supernatant phase. The results obtained are also compared with the experimental and theoretical work of previous investigators.
