Abstract

The performance evaluation criteria analysis for two-phase flow has been presented in this chapter. The disadvantages of using single-phase PEC correlations for two-phase flow have been discussed. Also, the factors to be considered to modify the single-phase PEC such that they can be applicable to two-phase flow have been listed.
