An electromagnetically induced signal measurement method is presented to measure solid-liquid two-phase flows in the present study. The method is validated by comparing visualization results for three flow patterns of “pseudo-homogenous flow,” “heterogeneous flow” and “heterogeneous and sliding-bed flow.” The present method has demonstrated a promising capability of measuring concentration and velocity of solid particles simultaneously with good accuracy.
