For practical applications the Euler-Euler two-fluid model relies on suitable closure relations describing interfacial exchange processes. The quest for models with a broad range of applicability allowing predictive simulations is an ongoing venture. A set of closure relations for adiabatic bubbly flow has been collected that represents the best available knowledge and may serve as a baseline for further improvements and extensions. In order to allow for predictive simulations the model must work for a certain range of applications without any adjustments. This is shown here for flows that allow to impose a fixed bubble size distribution which bypasses the need to model coalescence and breakup processes.
