Abstract

In this report, drag and lift forces acting on small particles arc investigated by means of simultaneous measurements of flow field and particle trajectories. The observed drag coefficients have the same trend as mentioned by other researchers. Under turbulent conditions, the average drag coefficients tend to increase relative to those under laminar conditions. The observed lift forces cannot be represented by Saffman lift. The magnitudes of the measured lift forces are quite small comparing to the drag forces.
