The paper presents a construction of a simplified model approximating the actual observed flow pattern. The resulting expressions for frictional pressure drop are found to agree fairly well with the author’s data for steam and water and the data for air and water of other investigators. The similarity with a portion of the Chenoweth-Martin correlation appears to present a logical explanation for the applicability of that correlation to slug flow.
