Phenomenological equations derived for the convective heat and mass transfer to Taylor bubbles (TB) rising in vertical cylindrical pipes. Three models presented; first for the bubble thin liquid layer region, second for the rounded nose region, and third for the wake region. The solution is confined to flat-ended Taylor bubbles under laminar flow and constant heat flux conditions. The results compared reasonably well with the experimental data of other investigators.
