Velocimetry in particle size analysis encompasses the range of issues and methods used to measure particle velocities consistent with particle size measurement systems. Particle size may be measured simultaneously or consecutively with the velocity measurements described in this article. This article will present some issues that should be considered in selection of a velocity measurement technique. Three examples of commonly used particle velocity methods will be discussed as illustrations of possible approaches. For each of these examples, a brief discussion of advantages and limitations of the methods will also be presented.
