In this paper, a measurement system is used to carry out local hydrodynamic measurements at the pore scale of a fixed-bed reactor. It consists of four microelectrodes placed on the inner wall of four spheres mounted in tetrahedral form, thus constituting a pore of the fixed bed. Three flow regimes (laminar, inertial and turbulent-like) are identified by the analysis of the signal fluctuations (velocity gradient). The flow structures are characterised by means of the correlation (auto- and cross-) function analysis, and a closure equation required in modelling and simulation is suggested.
