The generation of turbulence by uniform uxes of monodisperse spherical particles moving through a uniform owing gas was studied experimentally. Phase velocities, moments, probability density functions, and energy spectra were measured within a counter owing particle/gas wind tunnel using phase-discriminating laser velocimetry. Test conditions included particle Reynolds numbers of 106–990, particle volume fractions less than 0.003%, direct rates of dissipation of turbulence by particles… CONTINUE READING
