DPM massflow calculation using diameter and velocity
Because I am using laser PDA measurements, I try to calculate the particles massflows using particles diameter and velocity. Is it possible ?

You can calculate based on SMD, del P,Area and viscosity. there is a specific expression in the book " Atomization and spray" - Hentry Lefebvre.

Be careful here, since SMD (Sauter Mean Diameter) is a statistical representative of the diameters of particles here and not a mean diameter. Unless all your particles are same, the mean diameter and sauter mean diameter will be different.

OK, thanks to all.

Why not use P_FLOW_RATE(p)?
