VELOCITY MEASUREMENTS OF TRANSPARENT NON-NEWTONIAN PIPELINE SLURRIES WITH LASER DOPPLER ANEMOMETRY
An experimental description of the flow structure of non-Newtonian slurries in the laminar, transitional, and fully-developed turbulent pipe flow regimes was the primary objective of this research. Measurements included rheological characterization of the fluid and local fluid velocitymeasurements with a 2-component laser Doppler anemometer (LDA). Optical access to the flow was gained through a test section and a non-Newtonian slurry which were both transparent. Experiments were conducted in a large-scale pipe slurry flow facility with inside pipe diameter of 51 mm.
