I am using

\documentclass[twoside,twocolumn]{article}

and I need to place a very large figure composed of 12 smaller plots:

\begin{figure}[h]
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti1}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti3}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti5}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti7} 
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti9}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti11}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti13}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti15}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti17}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti19}    
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti21}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti23}
    \label{fig:Phase}
    \caption{Flow at the tube ending.}
\end{figure}

That's either very unwieldy or the plots have to be really scaled down to fit the twocolumn enviroment. I want to do this instead:

How this can be done?

    \begin{figure*}\end{figure*} instead of \begin{figure}\end{figure}? – Romain Picot Jan 21 '16 at 7:39

You should modify the environnement from figure to figure*:

\documentclass[twoside,twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}


\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{tmp}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure*}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{tmp}
\end{figure*}

\end{document}

So in your case:

\begin{figure*}[h]
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti1}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti3}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti5}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti7} 
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti9}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti11}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti13}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti15}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti17}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti19}    
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti21}
    \includegraphics[scale=0.28]{usti23}
    \label{fig:Phase}
    \caption{Flow at the tube ending.}
\end{figure*}
