This paper deals with measurements of convective velocity of large-scale thermal structures, using the thin foil technique and infrared thermography to visualize the thermal pattern on the wall. An image correlation method is proposed to track the displacement of the observed thermal pattern. The idea of the method is similar to that of particle image velocimetry, but the thermal patterns on the heated wall are used, rather than tracing particles. On this basis, the thermal patterns created by the coherent structures of turbulent channel flow are examined. Particular attention is paid to the determination of the optimal parameters of image acquisition, including spatial and temporal separation. An attempt is made to relate momentum and scalar transport analyses by considering the propagation velocity of large-scale temperature structures. The proposed technique appears to be an attractive alternative for non-intrusive analysis of turbulent flow, especially, where opaqueness of channel walls excludes the use of optical methods.
