Fall velocity of artificial porous particles
The objective of this research is to study the fall velocity of artificial porous particles. It is expected that this study will lead to further research concerning transport of flocules or porous particles in fluids. Two types of porous particles having two different porosities were made by cementing bearing balls together. Then another set of particles identical to the two types above were made with all pores sealed. These particles were released individually in six fluids of different viscosities and the fall velocity was found by photographic means. The drag coefficients of these particles ...
