Numerical calculations of the axial pressure gradients, liquid holdup, and the flow and turbulence fields in a stratified gas-liquid pipe flow are presented. A low Reynolds number k-ε formulation is used to model the turbulent viscosity. The model employed wall damping functions obtained from single-phase pipe flow. Results are in excellent agreement with experimental data.
