The three dimensional cross-sectional particle concentrations of particle-liquid two phase flows in the two cross-seciton of microchannel has been reconstructed using process tomography. In the obtained 3D (2D space and time) reconstruction image, the dielectric particle-injected area appears to have a high particle concentration, and the deionized water-injected area appears to have a low particle concentration. Dielectric particles as the solid phase and non-conductive deionized water as the liquid phase are non-uniformly injected to the microchannel. The comparison between the qualitative result of 3D reconstruction image and the quantitative result of particle concentration in flow direction transition is that the particle is reasonably distributed in the particle injected area of the cross-section. Based on the reconstructed particle distribution image, it is easy to estimate the particle diffusion behaviors in microchannel.
