1. Assume, Liquid Holdup = Flowing Liq. Vol. Fraction, Initially. 2. Use the calculated Reynolds number and Flowing Liq. Vol. Fraction to find out the Liquid Holdup from the Graph in Sheet 2 3. Iterate Liquid Holdup for constant Flowing Liq. Vol. Fraction and for various Reynolds numbers obtained by changing the Liquid Holdup. Iterate until you get the best Liquid Holdup value. 4. Compare the calculated Liquid Holdup with the Liquid Holdup obtained using Ne.
