Abstract

This Letter reports a hybrid three-dimensional (3D) visualization approach for turbulent flows at the kilohertz range. The approach, named scanning volumetric laser induced fluorescence (SVLIF), combines 3D tomography with scanning to significantly enhance spatial resolution of 3D measurements in a given domain (or equivalently, to enlarge the domain size under a given resolution) compared to past tomographic approaches. The SVLIF technique (1) divides a large measurement domain into smaller sub-domains, (2) performs 3D tomographic measurement in each sub-domain by scanning the excitation laser pulses across them consecutively, and (3) combines the measurements in all sub-domains to form a final measurement. This hybrid approach enables the conversion of temporal resolution into spatial resolution or domain size to optimize 3D measurements in a wider design space. In this work, the SVLIF was demonstrated and validated at a scanning rate of 1.86 kHz in a volume of 38.4  mm×26.5  mm×25.2  mm with 7.1 million voxels, representing a 5 times enhancement in the number of voxels or the domain size compared to past tomographic techniques.
