This study investigates the formation of clusters at 11 radial positions in a 2.63 cm ID downer reactor using the CREC-GS-Optiprobes. Cluster properties such as dimensions, drag coefficients and velocity across the downer unit radius are established based on the reported data and a probabilistic based model.
