C. G. Xie, Richard A Williams, S. J. R. Simons, M. S. Beck, R. Bragg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors describe a novel instrumentation system capable of measuring the particle volume fraction and solids flux of optically opaque suspensions undergoing sedimentation. Two independent but complementary measurement techniques-capacitance and pressure-are integrated into the system.
