A set of experiments was performed to study flow pattern suppression in gas-liquid pipe flow by means of surfactant additive. Results suggest that addition of the surfactant to gas-liquid flow significantly reduces the occurrence of slug flow. In addition, previously unreported flow patterns were observed to exist between slug and dispersed bubble flows. It is concluded that new mechanisms for slug flow transition need to be considered.
