Abstract

Correlations for pressure drop in gas-liquid cocurrent downflow through packed beds are presented, taking into cognizance the flow pattern of the phases and covering a wide range in experimental conditions. Criteria for flow regime discrimination are presented separately for low porosity and for high porosity packings.
