Abstract : An experiment is described involving photographs of flow of water and mercury with entrained gas to obtain data on visible bubble sizes and visible gas content for known loop operating parameters and known total gas content. From a comparison of the estimated visible gas content and the known total gas content conclusions are drawn regarding the distribution between dissolved and entrained gas. Conclusions are also presented regarding smallest visible bubble sizes, average mean observed sizes in both fluids, and homogeneity of the gas distribution in the fluids. (Author)
