The two-phase flow in a narrow short horizontal channel of rectangular cross section with the width of 10 mm and height of 300 μm was studied experimentally. The features of the jet regime were studied in detail. It is shown that an increase in superficial velocity of jet pulsation frequency increases, and the ratio of unwetted area of the upper channel wall to the wetted area of the upper channel wall decreases.
