  • Using oil-wet polyethylene core models, we present the development of robust throat finding techniques for the extraction, from X-ray microtomographic images, of a pore network description of porous media having porosity up to 50%. Measurements of volume, surface area, shape factor, and principal diameters are extracted for pores and area, shape factor and principal diameters for throats. We also present results on the partitioning of wetting and non-wetting phases in the pore space at fixed volume increments of the injected fluid during a complete cycle of drainage and imbibition. We compare these results with fixed fractional flow injection, where wettingmore » and non-wetting phase are simultaneously injected at fixed volume ratio. Finally we demonstrate the ability to differentiate three fluid phases (oil, water, air) in the pore space.« less
  • New diagnostic and sensor designs are needed for future burning plasma (BP) fusion experiments, having good space and time resolution and capable of prolonged operation in the harsh BP environment. We evaluate the potential of multi-energy x-ray imaging with filtered detector arrays for BP diagnostic and control. Experimental studies show that this simple and robust technique enables measuring with good accuracy, speed, and spatial resolution the T{sub e} profile, impurity content, and MHD activity in a tokamak. Applied to the BP this diagnostic could also serve for non-magnetic sensing of the plasma position, centroid, ELM, and RWM instability. BP compatiblemore » x-ray sensors are proposed using 'optical array' or 'bi-cell' detectors.« less
  • The authors demonstrate the use of millisecond x-ray phase-contrast imaging for velocity measurement of particle-laden flows in an optically opaque vessel. Taking advantage of particle size polydispersity, this single-particle tracking approach is extremely effective on flows with tracer particles exhibiting a great size distribution ranging from 1 {micro}m to hundreds of micrometers, which is impossible for visible-light-based techniques. Furthermore, a tomographic reconstruction was applied to yield the three-dimensional flow velocity field and its particle size dependence with unprecedented sensitivity.
  • Quantitative and nonintrusive fluid velocity and turbulence measurements obtained using laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) in a circular jet that is positioned nonconcentrically in a confining pipe are presented. The experimental findings are compared with the results obtained by the finite-element computational simulation of the flow. The measured and predicted contours of the time-averaged axial velocity reveal the presence of a three-dimensional (3-D) asymmetric reverse-flow region, with its radial and circumferential extent depending on the axial position and the eccentricity ratio. Due to the weakened radial mixing and spreading of the jet for the higher eccentricities, the transition to the fullymore » developed state is delayed for the high eccentricity cases. Measured and predicted contours of the axial turbulence fluctuations exhibit the ringlike distribution, although it is observed in an offset position for a given eccentricity ratio. At the downstream stations, the ringlike distribution tends to become more symmetric. The basic phenomena of flow reversal, preferential mixing, and shear layer growth are recovered by the computational predictions based on the high-Reynolds-number turbulence model. The time-averaged velocity measurements compare well with the predictions, whereas only qualitative comparison can be observed between the measured and predicted turbulence fluctuations.« less
  • An optical Doppler tomography (ODT) system that permits imaging of fluid flow velocity in highly scattering media is described. ODT combines Doppler velocimetry with the high spatial resolution of low-coherence optical interferometry to measure fluid flow velocity at discrete spatial locations. Tomographic imaging of particle flow velocity within a circular conduit submerged 1mm below the surface in a highly scattering phantom of Intralipid is demonstrated. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital Optical Society of America}
