In this paper, a two phase flow distribution in a horizontal pipe is numerically analyzed by solving one dimensional steady state momentum equation for predicting the pressure drop (∆P), quality of steam at outlet of the pipe (X), void fraction (α). The heat absorbed by the pipe (Q) and the mass flow rate (W) of water are varied over a wide range to investigate the above parameters. The locations of the two phase mixture are discussed. Pressure drop along the pipe is inconsistent for different flow rate so, the stable and unstable steady state solution is also carried out using Linear Stability analysis. The present numerical results are compared with the reported data from the literature and found that they are in good agreement. This study is used to calculate the pressure, temperature, hold up and quality within the horizontal pipe.
