This lesson covers the understanding of flow patterns and analytical models. It delves into the homogenous flow theory, the drift flux model, and the separated flow model. The lesson also discusses the different flow patterns such as bubble flow, slug flow, and annular flow. It explains how these patterns are analyzed using simple analytical models. For instance, the drift flux model is used to modify the homogenous fluid theory when there is a relative motion between the phases. The lesson also touches on the concept of pressure drop in these flow patterns and how it can be calculated.

- The homogenous flow theory is applicable when the two phases are intimately mixed and behave as a single sudo fluid.
- The drift flux model is used when there is a relative motion between the phases.
- The separated flow model is applicable when the two phases occupy separate cross sections of the tube.
- The bubble flow pattern, slug flow pattern, and annular flow pattern are specific flow patterns that can be analyzed using simple analytical models.
- The pressure drop in these flow patterns can be calculated using the homogenous flow model, the drift flux model, or the separated flow model.
