Abstract

The final stage of sedimentation of a spherical particle moving along the axis of a conical vessel containing a viscous incompressible fluid is studied both theoretically by lubrication analysis and experimentally by laser interferometry. The particle settling velocity varies like d5/2, where d is the gap. There is an excellent agreement between this result from lubrication theory and experiment, the upper bound being for a gap of about 1/30 radius and the lower practical bound being at the size of the particle roughness.
