    The Annular flow regime makes measurement of the total
    liquid flow rate difficult. It is even more difficult to
    measure the individual flow rate of either the oil or the
    water. In a vertical Perspex tube (i.d. = 50 mm) using a
    newly-designed flow loop in the University of
    Huddersfield, annular flow was established and different
    measurements were carried out. One possible on-line
    measurement technique to achieve the oil volume fraction
    measurement is an automated bypass system using
    solenoid valves. An ultrasonic flow meter was designed to
    serve the purpose of measuring the velocity of the gas in
    the core. In this study, the used techniques include the
    use of Conductance Flow Meter to measure the liquid film
    thickness and to obtain the film velocity using the crosscorrelation
    technique. The results of the present work
    have shown a good agreement with Zabaras and Dukler’s
    work which indicates the success of the new
    measurement techniques.
