Abstract: The objective of this study was to relate experimental pressure fluctuation behavior to the transition in mode of flow observed in fluidized dense phase pneumatic conveying of fly ash. Shannon entropy and wavelet analysis were utilized to extract features of the flow regimes. Daubechies db4 wavelet analysis of pulsating air pressure revealed that the flow mechanism of fly ash in a fluidized dense phase possessed non-steady characteristics associated with gradual aeration of dunes along the direction of flow. Variations of Shannon entropy values along the length of the pipeline were assessed to determine the location at which the flow converted from dense to dilute phase mode. The effects of conveying parameters and specific power consumption on Shannon entropy and variations of the local power consumption coefficient are discussed.
