Particle image velocimetry measurements in complex geometries

Particle image velocimetry measurements in complex geometries  One of the advantages of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is its ability to determine the instantaneous flow field over two- or three-dimensional domains. Yet PIV has had limited application to complex flow passages because of the difficulty in replicating these geometries with optically transparent materials. In this work, we describe a method for overcoming this difficulty using rapid prototyping techniques. As an illustrative example, the technique has been used to characterize flow in a model of the human nasal cavity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

 One of the advantages of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is its ability to determine the instantaneous flow field over two- or three-dimensional domains. Yet PIV has had limited application to complex flow passages because of the difficulty in replicating these geometries with optically transparent materials. In this work, we describe a method for overcoming this difficulty using rapid prototyping techniques. As an illustrative example, the technique has been used to characterize flow in a model of the human nasal cavity.
