Flow accelerated corrosion (FAC) is one of the pipe wall thinning phenomena. There are a few prediction equations for FAC under the two-phase flow condition, but their accuracy is uncertain. In this study, these equations are summarized. A new prediction equation is proposed, in which the liquid film velocity near the wall is taken into account. Also, FAC experiments with water-steam two-phase flow are performed. The thinning rate is predicted by calculation and compared with the experimental value.
