RESUMO

Predictions obtained by D. Emmerechts and M. Giot (University of Louvain) and by J. M. Cuta, D. Kim, C. W. Stewart (PNL) are compared with the experimental Data Set No. 5 (Bankoff & Lee, Multiphase Science and Technology Vol. 3, pp. 232−270, 1987). It was concluded that an analytical prediction of flooding consistent with other flow characteristics remained a significant challenge. The results were sensitive to the test section geometries.
