Single-phase turbulent mixing length methods are used to predict two-phase flow. Two-phase density and velocity distributions and two-phase pressure drops are derived by treating the two-phase system as a continuous medium where the turbulent exchanges of momentum and density are equal. Good agreement is obtained between test results and analytical predictions.
