The adiabatic flow of two phases, gas and liquid, has been studied in horizontal tubes of capillary diameter. The flow has been studied primarily in the regime where the gas flows as long bubbles separated from the wall of the tube by a liquid film and from each other by slugs of liquid. In this regime the density and the thickness of the liquid film around a bubble have been correlated. The conditions under which the long bubble flow can exist and under which the correlations are valid have been determined.
