The accurate prediction of two-phase gas and liquid flow regimes is important in the proper design, operation and scale-up of pressure management and fluid handling systems in a wide range of industrial processes. This paper provides a comprehensive review of 3947 published experimental data points for gasliquid flow maps in vertical pipes and annuli, including a critical analysis of state of-the-art measurement techniques used to identify bubble, slug, churn and annular flow regimes.
