Two-phase flows are encountered in a wide range of industrial and natural situations. Due to their complexity such flows have been investigated only analytically and experimentally. New computing facilities provide the flexibility to construct computational models that are easily adapted to a wide variety of physical conditions without constructing a large-scale prototype or expensive test rigs. But there is an inherent uncertainty in the numerical predictions due to stability, convergence and accuracy. The importance of a well-placed mesh is highlighted in the modelling of two-phase flows in horizontal pipelines.
