slip velocity

1. n. [Production Logging]
The difference between the average velocities of two different fluids flowing together in a pipe. In vertical ascending flow, the lighter fluid flows faster than the heavier fluid. The slip velocity depends mainly on the difference in density between the two fluids, and their holdups.
