Several research works have been reported for calculating terminal velocity of spherical particles. However, work is still limited on non spherical and irregular particles. In the present work, an attempt has been made for predicting the terminal velocity of irregular shaped particles using the proposed correlation. Further, the effects of variation of density, effect of variation of particle sieve diameter and variation of particle's Reynolds number on the particle terminal velocity have been presented for actual and the simulated values. It is observed that the curve is behaving in same manner for the actual and simulated terminal velocities.

Abstract


Several research works have been reported for calculating terminal velocity of spherical particles. However, work is still limited on non spherical and irregular particles. In the present work, an attempt has been made for predicting the terminal velocity of irregular shaped particles using the proposed correlation. Further, the effects of variation of density, effect of variation of particle sieve diameter and variation of particle's Reynolds number on the particle terminal velocity have been presented for actual and the simulated values. It is observed that the curve is behaving in same manner for the actual and simulated terminal velocities.
