Turbulent Air:Water Mixture Time Series

During a typical laboratory test, air content was decreased incrementally by 3.33 % on a ~2 minute interval. The calm and turbulent calibration points are essentially identical for a water content of 100 %, and deviate at most by 7.00 % when water content is 65 %. A trend towards decreasing deviation with decreasing air content was observed. The deviation is most likely caused by the inability to maintain a constant air-water ratio, especially as the rate of air injection becomes large.
