Simultaneous velocity measurements of both components of a two phase flow using particle image velocimetry
The undertaken study is an examination of a two phase dispersed air bubble mixing flow within a rectangular vessel. The technique of Particle Image Velocimetry is utilized in order to obtain non-invasive velocity measurements of the resulting bubbly flow field and its induced effects upon a surrounding liquid medium. The method provides not only a visualization of the various patterns and structures of a given flow field, but also yields quantitative full-field instantaneous velocity data from both phases of a two phase system in a concurrent manner. Results were obtained which indicate that the described PIV method is an effective tool in the study of the specific interactions which occur between components in a wide variety of multiphase systems.
