Abstract

High-speed particle image velocimetry (PIV) is first used to measure two components of the fluctuating particle velocities for different particle sizes and solid mass flow rates at low air velocity in a horizontal pipe. Then, the continuous wavelet transform and orthogonal wavelet multi-resolution techniques are employed to analyze and decompose the fluctuating particle velocities to provide both quantitative and qualitative information on the particle fluctuation velocity of various frequencies. It is revealed that the fluctuating energy of axial particle velocity is mainly contributed from the wavelet components of low frequency, accounting for about 84%, near the bottom part of the pipe cross-section. However, the contribution to the fluctuating energy of vertical particle velocity accounts for about 82% from the wavelet components of high frequency. The auto-correlation analysis suggests a quasi-periodical large-scale axial particle fluctuating velocity. On the other hand, the spatial correlation analysis indicates that the low-frequency components of the axial particle velocity exhibit a large correlation near the bottom part of the pipe cross-section. From the probability density function (PDF) distribution, it is found that the low-frequency components of the axial particle velocity exhibit larger fluctuation, and this fluctuation reduces as the frequencies increase near the bottom part of the pipe cross-section. Near the top part of the pipe cross-section, however, a larger fluctuating axial particle velocity appears in the high-frequency range.
