A general correlation is presented for heat transfer during flow of gas-liquid mixtures flowing in vertical channels prior to dryout. It has been verified with a wide range of data that include upwards and downwards flow in heated and cooled tubes, annuli, and rectangular channels. The data are from 19 studies and include 14 gas-liquid mixtures with a very wide range of properties. The parameters include pressure 1 to 6.9 bars, temperature 16 to 115 oC, liquid Reynolds number from 2 to 127231, superficial gas and liquid velocities up to 87 and 13 m/s respectively, and ratio of superficial gas and liquid velocities 0.03 to 1630. The 1022 data points are predicted by the new correlation with mean absolute deviation (MAD) of 18.1 %. Several other correlations were also compared to the same data and had much larger deviations.
