Europiv 2 : a joint program to improve piv performance for industry and research

Objective

Particle Image Velocimetry is a unique optical method to capture velocity fields in flows. It has been demonstrated in the EUROPIV 1 project. It is especially suited to hold the design of modern aircraft by consequently improving the performance of industrial wind tunnels. PIV provides much more information in much less time, giving a much deeper insight in the flow physics and saving large amounts of wind tunnel costs. Europe is at a leading position for the development of PIV toward industrial applications. The aim of the proposal is to push the development of PIV and to make it a real design tool for modern aeronautics. A joint approach of development, research and demonstration is proposed. Improvement of PIV for turbulence, near wall flows and vortices is looked at. Three demonstrations of Stereoscopic PIV in European industrial wind tunnels are planned. Research on future developments of PIV is performed.
