The total volume of the particles in a granular material, including both permeable and impermeable voids but excluding spaces between particles.



Related Terms

WATER-IN-LIQUID RATIO (WLR)

The water volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), at the pressure and temperature prevailing in that section.

MULTIPHASE FLOW RATE

The total amount of the two or three phases of a multiphase flow flowing through the cross-section of a conduit in unit time. The multiphase flow rate should be specified as multiphase volume flow rate or multiphase mass flow rate.

INELASTIC COLLISION

A collision in which the total kinetic energy of the colliding particles is not the same after the collision as before it.

DUST COUNTER

A photoelectric apparatus which measures the size and number of dust particles per unit volume of air. Also known as Kern counter.

BOOSTER FAN

A fan used to increase either the total pressure or the volume of flow.

GROSS REGISTERED TONS

A common measurement of the internal volume of a ship with certain spaces excluded. One ton equals 100 cubic feet; the total of all the enclosed spaces within a ship expressed in tons each of which is equivalent to 100 cubic feet.

GROSS REGISTERED TONNAGE

The total internal volume of the ship in units of 100 cu.ft.

GAS-LIQUID-RATIO (GLR)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), all volumes converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature.

WATER CUT (WC)

The water volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), both converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature. The WC is normally expressed as a percentage.

POROSITY

The ratio of pore volume to total volume of a filter medium expressed as a percent.
