The Excel spreadsheet contains the two tables and the raw data used to plot Figs. 4-12. The calculations have been performed using the PHOENICS code and in-house MATLAB scripts. The meaning of the symbols in the Excel spreadsheet is as follows:

σ is one of the two main calibration coefficients of the two-fluid model
β is one of the two main calibration coefficients of the two-fluid model
im is the hydraulic gradient
・  <Φs>γ   is the chord-average concentration
τlW and τsW  are the wall shear stresses induced by liquid and solid phases, respectively
θ is the azimuthal angle direction
Uz is the locally-averaged liquid velocity
Vm is the mean flow velocity
y is the vertical elevation from the pipe bottom
D is the diameter of the pipe

Note that the experimental data by Kaushal and Tomita (2007) and Shaan et al (2000), shown in Figs. 7, 8, 11, 12, were obtained from the PDF version of the published articles. Conversely, the experimental data by Matoušek (2002) were available in tabular format.
