IMG Seminar: Capabilities and Applications of Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV)

Event category: 
Event date: 
Thursday, October 21, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Event location: 
Larsen 234

Nik Zawodny will present the basic principles of Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) as well as a cataloging of the LDV processing and data analysis capabilities available to IMG members. LDV is a non-intrusive optical technique for measuring fluid particle velocities at a single point. LDV is a highly stable measurement process that at times can be superior to Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), with its ability to measure velocities in regions that cannot be illuminated with a laser light sheet.
