Two-phase flow exists in many engineering systems and is a dominant type of flow in heat exchangers, steam generators, and condensers. A flowing two-phase fluid is a source of energy that can cause vibration of tube bundles of these systems. A simple correlation is presented to predict the response of tube bundles in two-phase flow. The model correlates with experimental data reasonably well and is a useful tool in the prediction of tube response.
