Abstract: Our research focuses on breakup of bubbles and drops induced by a flow turbulence. In this contribution, we describe the experimental setup used for studying the breakup, and we characterize flow within it. The setup is a rectangular glass cell, in which a turbulent flow is generated by a set of coaxial nozzles. The flow within it is characterized by means of particle image velocimetry. From the velocity data, i) local dissipation rate (ε) is estimated using Large-Eddy PIV method, and ii) statistics of velocity difference in two points is evaluated. Estimation of ε is validated by integrating the total dissipation in the setup, which reasonably agrees with the injected kinetic energy. The probability density function of velocity difference is non-Gaussian and when properly normalized, it is universal within the setup.
