LONGITUDINAL ACOUSTICAL RESONANCE MEASUREMENT OF PARTICLE LOADING AND SIZING IN GAS-SOLIDS FLOW

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Dr alan a vetter
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The acoustical resonance measurement provides a nonintrusive and real-time measurement of mass loading and sizing of particles fluidized by a gas phase. the sound speed of a two-phase mixture of particles in gas decreases as the mass density of the particles increases. by measuring the decrease in… More
