PIV Systems


Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measures whole velocity fields by taking two images shortly after each other and calculating the distance individual particles travelled within this time. From the known time difference and the measured displacement the velocity is calculated. Since the flow can be quite fast one has to avoid blurred images and that‘s one reason to use laser pulses. They are only 6-10 ns long and freeze any motion. The other reason is that only laser light can be focused into a thin enough light sheet so that only particles in that plane are imaged. Otherwise the scattered light from particles in other planes would make this measurement impossible. A special camera is utilized so that it can store the first image (frame) fast enough to be ready for the second exposure. The "dead" time between the frames when the camera is "blind" is very short down to 100 ns.

Applications:

liquid and gas flow investigations in wind tunels, water channels, in-cylinder engines industrial flow systems, compressors, turbines, fans, pumps, Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS).
