A5.2 - Three-Dimensional, Three-Component Flow Field Measurements with a Single Camera

Ch. Cierpka, Ch. J. Kähler, M. Rossi & R. Segura
In many flow devices complex three-dimensional velocity fields are present and need to be characterized for further optimization of the devices. Optical particle based techniques are very advanced and a reliable tool in fluid dynamics. 2D2C PIV (particle image velocimetry) can give velocity information of high spatial resolution of the 2D velocity vector in the light sheet plane. To measure the third velocity component, multi camera approaches, e.g., a stereoscopic or tomographic setup can be...
