Two‐phase pressure drop and dynamic and total liquid saturation are experimentally determined for air‐water system under cocurrent downflow through packed beds using packing differing widely in geometry. The experimental data of the present study as well as that available in literature is satisfactorily correlated in terms of: (a) Lockhart‐Martinelli parameters; and (b) the Reynolds numbers defined for the respective phases and the bed porosity, taking into account the flow behavior of the phases through the packed bed.
