A summary of all available correlations and mechanistic models for the prediction of slug liquid holdup is presented. Additionally, an experimental data base for slug liquid holdup has been collected from available literature. A comparison between the predictions of available models and correlations against the data base is presented, identifying the range of applicability of the different methods. The correlations have been tuned against the new data by calculating new values of their constant parameters, showing an improved performance. Also, the uncertainties of the correlations parameters are evaluated and presented. A recommendation for the best method of predicting the slug liquid holdup is provided.
