Characteristics of different optical methods for drop size measurements in two-phase flows

Two optical methods for drop size measurement in sparay of pneumatic nozzles were considered. The methods are based on appearance of glare pairs on drops, method IPI (Interferometric Particle Imaging) and “two glares” or direct method. For direct method procedure of glare pairs detection and validation was developed.
