Validation of Electrical Capacitance Volume Tomography with Applications to Multi-Phase Flow Systems

2009, Master of Science, Ohio State University, Chemical Engineering.

Electrical Capacitance Volume tomography (ECVT) is gaining increased attention as a tool for imaging and understanding multi-phase flow systems. ECVT has
the advantage of providing qualitative and quantitative information of the dynamic
flow behavior of the process under investigation. ECVT non-invasive sensors are
potentially a useful tool for researchers in various process industries. Validation of
ECVT images using other established measurement technologies is vital to establish
confidence in the reliability of ECVT technology for quantitative measurements of
multi-phase flow systems.


Work in this thesis is focused on using different measurement techniques to validate ECVT imaging of similar flow systems. Specifically, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and fiber optics probes are used here. MRI is a well established imaging
tool that has the reputation of providing precise high resolution cross-sectional images.
On the other hand, fiber optics probes provide local density and velocity information
of multi-phase flows. The combination of both techniques to validate ECVT measurements is expected to provide an acceptable estimate of the accuracy of ECVT
imaging.
