This lesson covers the analysis of the slug flow pattern, focusing on the distortion and relative velocity in the pattern. It explains how the drift velocity U G j is a constant and how the velocity of the bubble can be taken as equal to the velocity of the gas in the slug flow pattern. The lesson also discusses the corrections needed under different flow circumstances, such as the wake effect of the preceding bubble and the effect of the bubble not moving relative to the average liquid velocity. It further explains how to generate a corrected expression of U d and how to calculate the void fraction and pressure gradient for the slug flow pattern. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the impact of long Taylor bubbles on the calculation of alpha and the pressure gradient.
