In the present study, we have carried out the experimental and numerical studies for the single- and two- phase flow characteristics and the corresponding pressure drop in the single- and multi-channels. We used the finite volume method to solve the mass and momentum conservation equations. The volume of fluid model is used to predict the two-phase flow in the channel. The calculated results for the single- and two-phase flow are partly compared with the present experimental data, showing relatively good agreement between them. The numerical scheme used in this study predicts well characteristics of single- and two-phase flow in a multi-channel. Thus we expect that system performances could be improved by obtaining the optimal conditions from the present calculation.
