Two-phase velocity measurements around cylinders using particle image velocimetry Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Particle Image Velocimetry flow measurement technique was used to study both single-phase flow and two-phase flow across a cylindrical rod inserted in a channel. First, a flow consisting of only a single-phase fluid was studied. The experiment consisted of running a laminar flow over four rods inserted in a channel. The water flow rate was 126 cm3/s. Then a two-phase flow was studied. A mixture of water and small air bubbles was used. The water flow rate was 378 cm3/s and the air flow rate was approximately 30 cm3/s. The data was analyzed to obtain the velocity fields for both experiments.
