Multiphase flow reactors are heart of many process industries. However, the flow dynamics of these reactors are not well understood mainly because of complex flow physics involved. In this course different technique available for monitoring and mapping of multiphase flow reactors will be discussed in detail. Techniques will be divided in two parts: Invasive, in which some probe will be intruded inside the vessel to measure the velocity and/or phase fraction and in Second part non-invasive techniques will be discussed in which measurement will be performed without disturbing the flow. The basic principle, equations, post processing methods, advantages and limitations of each technique will be discussed in detail.




Introduction to Multiphase flow Measurement Techniques: Invasive and Non-Invasive


Invasive technique for volume fraction and velocity measurements: Pitot tube, Pressure probe, Hotwire Anemometry, Optical fiber probe


Invasive technique for volume fraction and velocity measurements: Laser Doppler Anemometry, Particle Image Velocimetry, Positron Emission Particle Tracking, Radioactive Particle Tracking


Non-invasive techniques for Volume fraction Measurements: Electrical Capacitance Tomography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasonic Methods

Must have studied Mathematics at 10+2 level. Have studied graduate-level Fluid Mechanics. Knowledge of Computer Programming will be helpful but not a necessity.
