Heterodyne Doppler global velocimetry

Heterodyne Doppler global velocimetry Doppler Global Velocimetry (DGV) is an imaging flow measurement technique which allows the measurement of the velocity distribution in a plane. In DGV the frequency shift of scattered light from moving particles within the flow is used to determine the local flow velocity. Heterodyne Doppler Global Velocimetry (HDGV) is a new approach which combines the imaging and geometrical characteristics of DGV with the measurement principles of reference beam laser Doppler anemometry. The frequency shifted scattered light from the flow tracers is heterodyned with a reference beam from the same light source. Due to interference the result of this superposition is a harmonic intensity modulated signal. This signal is detected using a smart pixel detector array to obtain the velocity distribution. Two different experiments are presented. The first experiment compares the measured velocity distribution of a rotating disk with its actual velocity. The second experiment demonstrates the capability of the technique to measure a real flow. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
