TSI Webinar: Co-hosted by Vision Research

Particle Image Velocimetry Advancements with High-Speed Cameras

Particle Image Velocimetry Advancements with High-Speed Cameras

Oct 22 2020 9:00 AM (CDT) Webex Webinar


This webinar will be hosted by TSI, with special co-host Kyle Gilroy from Vision Research, Inc.

In this webinar, we will introduce attendees to the concepts surrounding high-speed imaging & particle image velocimetry (PIV). The seminar will begin by introducing the governing principles surrounding high-speed imaging, and discuss how quantitative data can be extracted from images. We will illustrate classic pitfalls and problems when performing and setting up cameras. We will follow by introducing the basic principle and operation of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). We will also introduce various types of PIV systems – from planar 2D to volumetric 3D measurements and include details such as subpixel noise, accuracy, & uncertainty. This will set the stage for understanding and extract viable data and conclusions. TSI engineers will set up a planar and volumetric PIV system demonstration is illustration how the system works during actual operation


  • Date: Thursday, October 22nd, 2020
