Inter-wake turbulence properties in homogeneous particle-laden flows

  title={Inter-wake turbulence properties in homogeneous particle-laden flows},
  author={Jeng-Horng Chen and G. Faeth},
The properties of turbulence generated by uniform fluxes of monodisperse spherical particles moving through a uniform flowing gas were studied experimentally, emphasizing the properties of the region surrounding individual wake disturbances, i.e., the turbulent inter-wake region. Mean and fluctuating values, probability density functions and energy spectra of streamwise and cross stream velocities were measured within a counterflowing particle/air wind tunnel using particle wake discriminating… Expand
