During the past two decades a considerable interest has been shown for investigating two-phase flow. The analysis of this type of flow, which resembles the simultaneous transfer of a liquid and a gas through pipes has great significance in refrigeration, chemical, cryogenic and rocket engineering. A number of investigators have published data on two-phase flow, but only a few had the experimental setup which also allowed a visual study of the phenomena occurring in this type of flow.
