Findings and Conclusions. Validations of the experimental apparatus for each of the intended modes of data collection including pressure drop, void fraction, and non-boiling two-phase heat transfer have proved highly satisfactory. In addition flow visualization was conducted using the experimental apparatus with excellent results. Having validated the functionality of this experimental apparatus, it is intended that it be utilized to further test correlations that have been developed for two-phase non-boiling heat transfer in pipes and void fraction. It is intended that the experimental apparatus be utilized to continue to develop these equations so that they are applicable for any angle of inclination between positive and negative ninety degrees. It is also intended that the device be used for generating flow maps for inclinations between positive and negative ninety degrees. The device should be considered both a highly capable and versatile addition to the Oklahoma State University heat transfer laboratory.APPENDIX A LIST OF EXPERIMENTAL EQUIPMENT Water Transport Bell and Gosset series 1535 Model 3545 D10 ... gate valve (for flow control) Air Transport Ingersoll-Rand T30 Model 2545 Industrial Air Compressor 1379kPa (200psi)anbsp;...
