A new technique based on wavelet transform is applied to bidimensional velocity fields obtained by particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements, in order to extract and characterize swirling motion associated with coherent structures. The proposed technique is based on the selectivity property of the wavelet transform and permits the detection of regions of the flow field associated with coherent structures and their spatial localization. Furthermore, being the method based on the analysis of the local energy content at separated scales, it is possible to extract the typical wavenumber associated with structures and therefore the typical length-scale. The procedure is validated by the application to velocity vector fields obtained from PIV measurements in different flow conditions and turbulence levels. Results are compared with those obtained by other more standard procedures, and the advantages and limitations of the proposed method are then discussed.
