The present dissertation represents a numerical investigation on the phase split phenomenon in liquid-liquid two-phase flow through vertical T-junction. The numerical simulation is performed using finite volume method (FVM) with 3D Eulerian multi VOF model. These numerical results are presented in terms of the phase contour at different cross section of the inlet, branch and run arm. The variation of the volume fraction is also extracted and plotted along the length of the individual arm of the T-junction (i.e. inlet, run and branch arm). The variation of volume fraction along the branch arm are found to be completely different from that along the run arm. Again, it is completely different from that along inlet arm. It is established that the separation performance through the T-junction is largely depended on the inlet flow pattern and volume fraction.
