Time-resolved two-dimensional X-ray densitometry of a two-phase flow downstream of a ventilated cavity

Time-resolved two-dimensional X-ray densitometry of a two-phase flow downstream of a ventilated... To measure the void fraction distribution in gas–liquid flows, a two-dimensional X-ray densitometry system was developed. This system is capable of acquiring a two-dimensional projection with a 225 cm2 area of measurement through 21 cm of water. The images can be acquired at rates on the order of 1 kHz. Common sources of error in X-ray imaging, such as X-ray scatter, image distortion, veiling glare, and beam hardening, were considered and mitigated. The measured average void fraction was compared successfully to that of a phantom target and found to be within 1 %. To evaluate the performance of the new system, the flow in and downstream of a ventilated nominally two-dimensional partial cavity was investigated and compared to measurements from dual-tip fiber optical probes and high-speed video. The measurements were found to have satisfactory agreement for void fractions above 5 % of the selected void fraction measurement range. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
