... Abstract Sieve analysis, sedimentation and laser diffraction have been the methods of choice in determining particle size distribution (PSD) for sand control design. However, these methods do not provide any information regarding the particle shape. In this study, we introduce the application...

... screen size selection. The main difference between the dry sieve and LPSA methods is in the way particle sizes are estimated by these techniques. Sieve measures the second smallest dimension because of the way the particles orient themselves to pass through the opening given sufficient time. A light...
