A New Micro Bubble Generator for Producing Air Filled Soap Bubbles as Tracers for PIV in Wind Tunnel Applications

During this 30-minute webinar recording, you will learn about how the new Bubble Generator can enhance your measurement approach:

  • Provides 15 micron bubbles as seed particles for wind tunnel flows with planar and volumetric PIV
  • Long residence time of more than 30 min, making long time-resolved measurements feasible
  • High output of more than 107 bubbles/s and high concentration of 20,000 bubbles/cm³

Advances in 3D Particle Tracking: Algorithmic Improvements to Volumetric Velocimetry

This webinar will discuss the methods used in TSI's INSIGHT™ V3V-4G software to extract volumetric velocity information from a three-dimensionally illuminated region of a flow field. Additionally, algorithms designed to improve the positional accuracy and vector yield will be discussed. Real data acquired from TSI's V3V-Flex system will be used in a number of examples. Watch this webinar to also learn about some recent advances in 3D PTV.

Investigating Turbulent Boundary Layer Flow Structures Using 4-Camera Volumetric PIV

This webinar will focus on turbulent boundary layer structure measurements, taken by a 4-camera volumetric PIV system, elucidating the development of turbulent hairpin vortices. Four high-pixel resolution cameras, each with 8 million pixels, were employed to capture high spatial resolution measurements. An Nd:YAG pulse laser with 380 mJ energy per pulse illuminated the measurement volume. The complete volumetric flow was captured with the system, providing instantaneous and time-averaged u, v and w velocity components. Flow quantities including iso-surfaces of vorticity described the development of the hairpin forces.

New Approaches to the Study of Hydrodynamics in Animals with Volumetric PIV

The study of fish locomotion can be greatly enhanced by understanding the 3D motion of the fluid in which they interact. This webinar focuses on research in this area using a V3V volumetric PIV system.
