Abstract

A new particle imaging velocimetry data acquisition and analysis system, which is an order of magnitude faster than any previously proposed system, has been constructed and tested. The new particle displacement tracking (PDT) system is an all electronic technique employing a video camera and a large memory buffer frame-grabber board. Using a simple encoding scheme, a time sequence of single exposure images is time coded into a single image and then processed to track particle displacements and determine 2-D velocity Use of the PDT technique in a counterrotating vortex flow produced over 1100 velocity vectors in vectors. 110 s when processed on an 80386 PC.
