This paper present a two-phase pressure drop model for a in-line tube bundle for airwater mixtures flowing through an idealised shell and tube, in-line heat exchanger. The model used momentum flux and entrained liquid fraction to predict the acceleration pressure drop. The model predicts the pressure drop well using both accelaration and gravitational pressure drop deduced from data available in open literature. The model is shown to be mass flux dependence.
