The characteristics of two-phase slug flow in a narrow rectangular channel with cross section of 3.25 mm × 43 mm under vertical and inclined conditions are investigated using a high speed video camera system. It is found that the velocity of Taylor bubble in vertical continuous slug flow could be well predicted by the Nicklin et al. (1962) correlation, in which C0 is given by the correlation of Ishii (1977), and the drift velocity given by the correlation of Sadatomi et al. (1982) or Clanet et al. (2004). For low two-phase superficial velocity (FrTP ≤ 3.5), the Taylor bubble velocities gradually increase with the increasing in inclination angles and almost approximate the maximum value for θ = 30°. For high two-phase superficial velocity (FrTP > 3.5), the influence of the inclination angles on the Taylor bubble velocity is insignificant, and the bubble velocity under vertical condition is slight lower than those under inclined conditions. For the inclined cases, the nose of Taylor bubble is deviated from the centerline and its position is the function of the two-phase superficial velocity as well as the inclination angle.
