Abstract

The expected value and the variance of the regular transmittance of a dilute dispersion of slender straight circular cylinders with a diameter much larger than the wavelength of the radiation are studied theoretically in relation to the dimensions of the cylinders and the diameter of the radiation beam used. Both monodisperse and heterodisperse dispersions are considered. The study is limited to two particle categories: (i) particles that are short and (ii) particles that are long but thin compared with the diameter of the radiation beam. The expected value is a function of concentration and particle diameter. The variance is proportional to the concentration. The variance is also proportional to particle length in the case of short particles but not in the case of long particles. The results explain interesting possibilities for the characterization of dispersions of large cylindrical particles shown earlier in industrial on-line applications.
