Abstract

Velocity measurements were performed within a 0.1 % fibre suspension and compared with a 0% fibre suspension. Measurements within a mixing jar are presented here demonstrating the ability to collect data within the fibre suspension. Initial results demonstrate the effect of the suspension on a number of turbulence quantities. For the conference, data will be presented from a flow channel to model the effect of the fibre suspension on a duct flow.
