Abstract

We present an experimental approach for estimating finite-time Lyapunov exponent fields (FTLEs) in three-dimensional multi-component or multi-phase flows. From time-resolved sequences of particle images, we directly compute the flow map and coherent structures, while avoiding and outperforming the computationally costly numerical integration. Performing this operation independently on each flow component enables the determination of three-dimensional Lagrangian coherent structures (LCSs) without any bias from the other components. The locations of concurrent LCSs for different flow elements (e.g., passive tracers, inertial particles, bubbles, or active particles) can provide new insight into the interpenetrating FTLE structure in complex flows.
