Paper Abstract

An accurate drop size and velocity information in multiphase flows is a common requirement in many parts of the industry. This information can only be achieved if the measurements are made without distorting the flow. Laser techniques are employed for this purpose. This paper highlights the problems in using these techniques and discusses the results obtained from three different experimental rigs. It has been shown that the drop size and velocity data obtained from this study provides useful information to understand the complicated flow phenomena occurring within these flow channels. Laser results obtained from different techniques have also been analyzed for identical flow conditions.
