Application of the amended Coriolis flowmeter "bubble theory" to sound propagation and attenuation in aerosols and hydrosols
The existing viscous and incompressible theory of isothermal sound propagation and attenuation in suspensions considers solid particles which are infinitely viscous. We extend the theory by applying the amended Coriolis flowmeter "bubble theory". Here, the drag force is a function of both the fluid and particle Stokes numbers and the particle-to-fluid ratio of the dynamic viscosity [V.Galindo and G.Gerbeth, A note on the force of an accelerating spherical drop at low-Reynolds number, Phys. Fluids A Vol. 5, 3290-3292 (1993)]. Aerosol and hydrosol examples are presented and differences between the original and extended theories are discussed.
