Abstract

This thesis deals with the broad topic of particles in turbulence, which has applications in a diverse number of fields. A vast majority of fluid flows found in nature and in the industry are turbulent and contain dispersed elements. In this thesis, I have focused on light particles (air bubbles in water), where the particle density is lesser than the carrier fluid. I have experimentally investigated the dynamics of these light particles in turbulence, which is an unexplored regime in current literature.
