The objective of this work is to investigate characteristics of co-current boiling flow in a circular pipe with an inner diameter of 52 mm by using wire mesh tomography (WMT) and ultrasonic velocity profile (UVP). The inner wall of pipe is modified by adding fins on the inner pipe’s wall. This modification is intended to change the flow behavior into swirling flow in boiling flow. Firstly, the effect of wall modification on flow behavior is investigated by numerical calculation. Secondly, two-phase flow is investigated experimentally using UVP and WMT. In experiments, local time-average void fraction is measured using WMT and velocity profile is measured using UVP. Furthermore, these measured data, both void fraction and velocity profile, will give information about changing in flow pattern caused by modified inner pipe’s wall.
