Abstract : Two phase gas-liquid flow and its associated interfaces exist in a wide variety of situations of importance to the Navy and this has prompted the study of the basic flow mechanics which underlie this complex process. The existence of wind-wave interactions over large bodies of water have long been recognized as a special case of two phase flow where the presence of the deformable interface plays a complex role in the generation of waves due to the action of the wind. Less well recognized, but of great importance, are situations of two phase flow which are found in component of power systems such as condensers, boilers refrigeration loops and cryogen lines. Here the characteristics of two phase flow are critical to the reliable design and safe operation of such systems.
