Abstract
Correlations were developed to predict frictional pressure drop for concurrent gas-liquid upflow through packed beds covering all the three identified flow regimes. i.e. bubble flow, pulse flow and spray flow. The observation that the gas and liquid flow rates have different influences on the two-phase pressure drop in different flow regimes, was taken into consideration in the development of these correlations. More than 600 experimental pressure drop data from the present study and literature covering a wide range in gas-liquid systems, flow rates and column packing were used.
