In fluid mechanics, pace size is prime so one can enhance the habit wisdom of the move. pace maps aid us to appreciate the suggest circulation constitution and its fluctuations, on the way to additional validate codes.Laser velocimetry is an optical method for pace measurements; it really is according to gentle scattering via tiny debris assumed to persist with the move, which permits the neighborhood fluid move speed and its fluctuations to be made up our minds. it's a regular non-intrusive strategy to degree velocities in fluid flows, both in the community or in a map.This ebook offers a number of the concepts of laser velocimetry, in addition to their particular traits: neighborhood measurements or in airplane maps, suggest or instant values, 3D measurements. circulation seeding with debris is defined with at present used items, in addition to the proper aerosol turbines. Post-processing of information permits us to extract artificial info from measurements and to accomplish comparisons with effects issued from CFD codes. the rules and features of the several to be had options, all in keeping with the scattering of sunshine by means of tiny debris embedded within the stream, are defined intimately; exhibiting how they convey diverse details, both in the community or in a map, suggest values and turbulence features.

Example text

E. the two optical path lengths that the two laser beams travel before crossing in M must be nearly equal, and their path difference must be smaller than the coherence length of the laser beam, which is typically 4 cm for an argon laser, more for a helium-neon (He-Ne) laser, and less for pulsed lasers or laser diodes (a few millimeters). 5. 5a represents two beams crossed and focused in M. As angle θ is generally small (a few degrees), a set of interference straight and parallel Young’s fringes are thus created in M, which are equidistant and alternately dark and bright planes, these planes being parallel to the θ bisector and perpendicular to the plane of the crossed beams.

In stable, non-reactive flows, velocity measurements in a plane can be achieved by taking advantage of the fluorescence induced by an argon laser on iodine molecules (the line width is refined by adding a Fabry-Pérot interferometer in the cavity); plane fluorescence is recorded using a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera, with integration times of 30 seconds [MCD 93]. The laser scans the iodine absorption line profile, which provides an image series from which the Doppler shift is deduced. These tests being relatively long, they require a stable flow and a uniform iodine vapor seeding; the major drawback of this technique comes from the high degree of corrosion induced by the iodine vapor, which makes this method difficult to apply.
