Order and disorder in particle–liquid flows in a pipe

Order and disorder in particle–liquid flows in a pipe The spherical expanded polystyrene particle–oil two-phase flow in a vertical pipe was used to simulate the dispersed phase distribution in laminar bubbly flows. A three-dimensional particle image tracking technique was used to track the particles in the flow to study the ordered structure of dispersed phase distribution and its transition to disorder. The ordered structures behaved as particle strings aligned in the flow direction as induced by the flow shear. The structures were quite durable in high liquid velocity flows and dispersed gradually as the liquid velocity decreased. In lower velocity flows, the particles tended to form clusters in the horizontal direction, as predicted by potential theory for spherical bubbles rising in a quiescent inviscid liquid and as observed in experiments on non-shear bubbly water flows. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
