We investigate the distribution of sizes and velocities of droplets detached from a single roll wave propagating in a pipe. The wave is induced by a pulse in liquid flowrate in a stratified air-water flow. Due to the shear applied on the crest of the wave by the faster gas stream, droplets are formed and entrained by the gas. Detection and tracking of the droplets is performed by image processing. The distributions of sizes and velocities of the droplets are determined in the center of the pipe for various distances to the roll wave and compared to those measured for higher gas flowrate when droplets are produced from all the roll waves formed naturally at the gas-liquid interface without external forcing.
