In this study, we will suggest a two-dimensional two-fluid model considering the effect of mass and momentum interactions to simulate more realistic two-phase flow than the conventional model did. A hyperbolic two-fluid model had been developed for one-dimensional two-phase flow by Chung et al. [1] and it has been improved and applied to analyze one-dimensional two-phase flow problem including surface tension effect for either ordinary pipe system or minichannels. However, in order to simulate the two-dimensional two-phase flow problem efficiently in the future, the above one-dimensional model has need to be extended to two-dimensional equations and adopted to an upwind numerical method.
