The continuity and momentum equations for fully developed and spatially developing slug flows are established by considering the entire film zone as the control volume. They are used for the calculations of pressure gradient, slug frequency, liquid holdup in the film, flow pattern transition, slug dissipation, and slug tracking. Comparison with available experimental results shows that these equations correctly describe the slug dynamics in gas-liquid pipe flow. [S0195-0738(00)00701-9]
