AN 158 EFFECT PARTICLE SHAPE ON PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENT
The Effect of Particle Shape on Particle Size Measurement
Particle size analysis has a broad range of applications encompassing virtually all industries. Numerous automated techniques exist for measuring particle size distribution and virtually all report particle size in units of equivalent spherical diameter. This is necessary because of the ambiguity of describing the diameter of an irregularly shaped particle, and of constraints inherent in the instrument detection system.
