Abstract : A mathematical approach to correlation of experimental results on pellet flow is presented which compares the actual closure time for n actualACCEL ROME ER TO THE THEORETICAL CLOSURE TIME FOR AN IDEAL ACCELEROMETER. As part of this approach a study is presented, and formulas derived, for the packing of spheres into annular and cylindrical cross sections. (Author)
