Obtaining turbulence statistics in particle-laden flows using optical whole-field measurements is complicated due to the inevitable data loss. The effects of this data loss are first studied using synthetic data and it is shown that the interpolation of missing data leads to biased results for the turbulence spectrum and its derived quantities. It is also shown that the use of overlapping interrogation regions in images with a low image density can lead to biased results due to oversampling. The slotting method is introduced for the processing of particle image velocimetry (PIV) data fields with missing data. Next to this, it is extended to handle unstructured data. Using experimental data obtained by a dual-camera PIV/PTV (particle tracking velocimetry) system in particle-laden grid turbulence, the performance of the new approach is studied. Some preliminary two-phase results are presented to indicate the significant improvement in the statistics, as well as to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the system.
