A sensitivity analysis of the point reference global correlation (PRGC) technique for spatio-temporal correlations in turbulent flows

A sensitivity analysis of the point reference global correlation (PRGC) technique for... The point reference global correlation (PRGC) technique which combines single and global measurements as proposed by Chatellier and Fitzpatrick (Exp Fluids 38(5):563–757, 2005) is of significant interest for the analysis of the turbulent statistics for noise source modeling in jet flows as it allows the 2D spatio-temporal correlation functions to be obtained over a region of the flow. This enables the statistical characteristics including inhomogeneous and anisotropic features to be determined. The sensitivity of the technique is examined in some detail for the specific case of laser doppler velocimetry (LDV) and particle image velocimetry (PIV). Simulated data are used to enable a parametric study of the accuracy of the PRGC technique to be determined as a function of the various measurement parameters. The sample frequencies and the number of samples of both the LDV and PIV signals are shown to be critical to errors associated with the estimated spatio-temporal correlations and that low data rates can lead to significant errors in the estimates. Measurements performed in single stream and co-axial jet flows at Mach 0.24 using PIV and LDV systems are reported and the 2D space–time correlation functions for these flows are determined using the PRGC technique. The results are discussed in the context of noise source modeling for jet flows. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
