Paper Abstract

The characterization of solid suspensions in fluid is discussed with reference to existing methods used in optics (turbidimetry). Merits and flaws of the present standard for turbidity measurements are discussed. A method for a more profound characterization of solid suspensions in fluid, based on multi-angular scattering measurements, is presented. A simple model for experimental data interpretation is developed. Results of the model are compared with measurements performed on monodisperse particulate.
