In relation to the development of the interfacial area transport equation in a subcooled boiling flow, the one-dimensional interfacial area transport equation was evaluated by the data taken in the hydrodynamic separate effect tests without phase change, or an adiabatic air–water bubbly flow in a vertical annulus. The annulus channel consisted of an inner rod with a diameter of 19.1 mm and an outer round tube with an inner diameter of 38.1 mm, and the hydraulic equivalent diameter was 19.1 mm. Twenty data sets consisting of five void fractions, about 0.050, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, and 0.25, and four superficial liquid velocities, 0.272, 0.516, 1.03, and 2.08 m/s were used for the evaluation of the one-dimensional interfacial area transport equation. The one-dimensional interfacial area transport equation agreed with the data with an average relative deviation of ±8.96%. Sensitivity analysis was also performed to investigate the effect of the initial bubble size on the interfacial area transport. It was shown that the dominant mechanism of the interfacial area transport was strongly dependent on the initial bubble size.
