Particle movement in a fluid at rest

  • Claus Bernhardt
Part of the Powder Technology Series book series (POTS, volume 5)


The following considerations deal with the theoretical foundations of particle movement in a fluid as long as these are of importance for the problems of sedimentation or air classification analysis. As is well known, these measurement principles are partially based on the fact that it is possible to draw conclusions about the geometrical dimensions (size) of particles from the knowledge of their speed in a fluid.
