Experimental set-up for tomographic piv (3c-3d) measurements

<strong>Experimental set-up for tomographic piv (3c-3d) measurements</strong><br /><br /><p>A test bench has been designed and built to operate tomographic particle image velocimetry, a non-intrusive laser optical diagnostic technique to measure the three components (3c) of velocity vectors in a fluid flow volume (3d). This technique, exclusively used in research, is one of the first available in the country. A specially designed water tank with 16 transparent sides has been built to allow the simultaneous acquisition of images by four high-speed cameras in any desired flow volume. The set-up is dedicated to research in fundamental and applied fluid dynamics, in particular to capture the unsteady boundary layer separation that occurs in flows in aero- and hydrodynamics, for applications in aeronautics and energy generation.</p> <strong>Experimental set-up for tomographic piv (3c-3d) measurements</strong><br /><br /><small>Experimental set-up for tomographic piv (3c-3d) measurements</small><br /><br /><p>A test bench has been designed and built to operate tomographic particle image velocimetry, a non-intrusive laser optical diagnostic technique to measure the three components (3c) of velocity vectors in a fluid flow volume (3d).

Kiel Rake for jet engine component experimentation

<strong>Kiel Rake for jet engine component experimentation</strong><br /><br /><p>New Kiel rake probe that will be installed in our next Compressor Rig test section. A Kiel is a device for measuring stagnation pressure in fluid dynamics. It is a variation of a Pitot probe where the inlet is protected by a "shield." Compared to the Pitot probe, it is less sensitive to changes in yaw angle, and is therefore useful when the probe's alignment with the flow direction is variable or imprecise. The entire rake is manufactured in stainless steel.</p> <strong>Kiel Rake for jet engine component experimentation</strong><br /><br /><small>MËKANIC - 1/16" pressure ports for PVC tubing</small><br /><br /><p>New Kiel rake probe that will be installed in our next Compressor Rig test section.
