This paper presents applications of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to modeling of two-phase annular-mist flows with evaporating liquid films. This type of two-phase flow exists in boiling channels prior to the onset of dryout. Annular-mist flows have a very complex structure since they contain liquid and vapor, both as the continuous and the dispersed phase. Due to this feature, both the Eulerian-Eulerian as well as the Eulerian-Lagrangian approaches are often used to model such flows. The two approaches, with pertinent conservation equations and closure relationships, are reviewed in this paper.
