Two-phase, single-component flow Is more complex than single-phase flow because of the additional degrees of freedom of mass, momentum, and energy transport between the phases, which lead to many possible flow patterns. Methods for determining these patterns do not yet exist, and therefore an accurate prediction of the behavior of two-phase flow systems cannot be made.
