ABSTRACT

This paper reviews the existing theoretical models and correlation methods in modelling core-annular flow of oil and water in a pipe line. By taking into account the effect of eccentricity, a lubricating-film model is developed to predict the pressure reduction. The model is further investigated by comparing with the experiments carried out with high viscosity oil in a wide range of pipe diameters (1 to 8 inch).
