Study deals with liquid dispersion of water in unstructured wire mesh of rotating packed bed, experimentally investigated using high speed camera. Dispersed water in outer region of rotating packed bed were captured by high-speed camera and droplet size were investigated using image processing. Numerical simulations were performed on two – dimensional plane with similar geometry characteristics (diameter and distance between each wire). Volume of fluid method was used to describe a multiphase behaviour of phenomena and turbulence was modelled using k-epsilon model. Results of both were compared on basis of frequency distribution of individual size fraction of dispersed water in outer region of rotating packed bed and its velocities. Discussion was focused on possibility of 2D numerical investigation and possibility of its comparison with experimental measurement.
