The effect of presence of solid particles on stratified wavy gas-liquid flows has been studied. The height of liquid phase in the natural gas pipeline is a key parameter in designing and can affect the corrosion/erosion rate. In present paper, the numerical four-way simulation of solid particles in gas-liquid wavy stratified flow has been used. The computational model is shown to be able to evaluate the effect of the particles on liquid holdup which is critical for gas pipeline design. The particles cause the liquid phase height in horizontal pipe decreases by increasing the solid phase concentration.
