dc.description.abstractAn experiment for measuring self-filtration in terms of change in volume fraction downstream of a constriction compared to volume fraction upstream of said constriction was designed and tested. The user has the ability to control a variety of parameters including constriction geometry, flow rate, and initial volume fraction in order to evaluate their impact on downstream volume fraction. The relative uncertainty in measured downstream volume fraction was found to be 1.31%. Experimental data was collected to show the effect of changing initial volume fraction and flow rate on downstream volume fraction.en_US
