This paper develops a water holdup calculation model based on flow characteristics for no-slip oil-water twophase flow. The model is constructed in consideration of two flow patterns: the stratified flow (ST) and the stratified flow with some mixing at the interface (ST&MI). The predicted values obtained by the model are compared with the test data on white oil-water flow. The results show that the model can accurately predict the water holdup of no-slip oil-water two-phase flow, which is of
