Abstract
The work presented in this article demonstrates the use of an empirical and simplified approach based on an optical technique and a home-made ad hoc code that give knowledge of the shape and falling velocity of a free-falling non-submerged liquid stream to predict its typology and flow rate. The visualization photographic technique is a non-intrusive robust technique which can be applied to high-temperature liquids in harsh environments, such as an iron stream in a foundry. This technique allows...
