The Stokes number, the ratio of the particle time scale to flow time scale, is a promising quantity for estimating changes in statistics of turbulence due to particles. First, we explored the Stokes numbers in some recent studies. Secondly, we discussed the results of our direct numerical simulation for turbulent flow with a high-density particle in a vertical duct. In the discussion, we defined the particle Reynolds number from the mean fluid velocity in the near-particle region at any time. We evaluated a new local Stokes number for the particle. It is found that the Stokes number is effective for the prediction of the distance between the particle center and one wall. Finally, we carried out experiments for turbulent water flow with aluminum balls of 1 mm in diameter in a vertical channel. The motions of aluminum balls and tracer particles in the flow were captured with a high-speed video camera. We found that the experimental results for the time changes in the wall-normal distance of the ball and the particle Reynolds number for the ball are similar to the predicted results.
