This paper presents experimental results of viscous oil-water flow obtained from different facilities. These facilities have different length scale (length and pipe diameter), and both model oil and crude oil were used in the tests. The detailed analysis of these data covers: flow regime behaviour, emulsion viscosity, wall and interfacial shear stress for a stratified flow, etc. An assessment of the performance of the classical models of oil-water flow is conducted.
