Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Absorption filter based optical diagnostics techniques introduced by Miles et al. in the Rayleigh scattering regime and by Komine et al. in the Mie scattering regime have started a new era in flow visualization, simultaneous velocity and thermodynamic properties measurements, and planar velocity measurements. Filtered planar velocimetry (FPV) is a newly developed technique whose principles are based on Miles et al.'s study. FPV is currently being extended to the three-camera configuration for the simultaneous measurement of all the three components of instantaneous velocity on a plane and of thermodynamic properties on a point. The accuracy and robustness of the technique are currently being improved.
