Title: The Science and Technology of Void Fraction Measurements in Multiphase Flow
Biography: Abdullah Abbas Kendoush
Void fraction measurements are reviewed with emphasis on applications to multiphase flow. The presentation is divided into two main sections; intrusive where the probe penetrates into the flow field, and non-intrusive where the detection is done remotely. The latter is more preferrable than the former. We subdivided the non-intrusive techniques into into two main categories; nuclear and non-nuclear. In the nuclear section, we discussed the utilization of almost all types of radiations ,namely; beta, neutrons, gamma, X-ray, and near infrared. In the non-nuclear techniques, we presented the following methods; fluorescence, optical sensors, laser, autotransformer winding, ultrasonic, and photgraphy.
