Research Description: Acquisition of non-intrusive, benchmark experimental data for particle-laden flows – both liquid-solid (slurry) and gas-solid flows – using laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV).
In slurry flows, we are interested in the transitional regime, between viscous-dominated flows and inertia-dominated flows. To date, there is no detailed experimental or modeling work for this flow regime.
For the gas-solid flows, we will be working with NASA-Kennedy Space Center using LDV to study the flow behavior of liberated particles when gas jets or large particles impact particle beds.
