PIV System 2D Measurement


Particle image velocimetry (PIV) systems measure the instantaneous global velocity field in a flowing fluid. Since introducing the first commercial PIV system in 1988, TSI has led the way in PIV innovation and technology.

Product Details

TSI Incorporated's 2D PIV system maintains this tradition by incorporating the most advanced analysis schemes in a completely re-engineered software platform built for flexibility and expansion. Features such as grid deformation and other algorithms from our exclusive license to MicroPIV technology such as ensemble correlation averaging and background correction, ensure the highest possible measurement accuracy even in sparsely seeded flows and flows with large spatial velocity gradients.


  • Design optimization in flow devices
  • Fluid mechanics research
  • Validation of CFD result

Core System Components
