Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a leading technique that allows flow velocity measurements in two- and three- dimensional domains. PIV is a full-field, non-intrusive and quantitative technique. However, due to the complexity of the measurement chain, PIV results are often affected by errors from various sources. It is therefore necessary to...

Gonzalez Saiz, G. (author)
Experimental aeroelasticity has been hindered by the intrusivity of measurement equipment and complexity of the experimental setups. Advancements in hardware development have been encouraging optical tracking techniques to replace cross correlation approaches in experimental aerodynamics. However, digital image correlation (DIC) is still the...

This thesis presents a novel measurement approach for aeroelastic wind tunnel testing. The key novelty of this approach is the integrated measurement of aerodynamic and structural quantities using an optical technique. The considered approach consists of combined measurements of flow tracer particles and structural markers using a Lagrangian...

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is considered nowadays the state-of-the-art for non-intrusive and quantitative 3D velocity measurements. Its ability to measure the velocity field around complex geometries is a valuable tool that engineers can exploit for aerodynamic design optimization in various domains, such as aerospace, wind turbines and...

The development of offshore wind energy, especially the steps towards deep water and/or higher density wind farms, revives the prospects of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs). Because VAWTs may reduce the cost of floating structures, there is a potential to lower energy costs. However, VAWTs are often assumed to be less efficient and less...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...

Spoelstra, A.M.C.M.G. (author)
The research presented in this thesis introduces a new measurement concept for on-site aerodynamic measurements based on large-scale stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (stereo-PIV) measurements past an athlete, a vehicle or an object travelling through a quiescent environment. The analysis of the momentumdeficit past the transit poses the...

Engler Faleiros, D. (author)
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) relies upon the introduction of particle tracers that scatter sufficient light and follow the flow accurately. The use of submillimetre helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) as flow tracers for PIV is investigated for the purpose of enabling velocity measurements in large-scale industrial wind tunnels. That soap...

The use of large-scale particle image velocimetry (PIV) is proposed for cycling aerodynamic study to advance the general understanding of the flow around the rider and the bike, leading to new strategies for cycling aerodynamic drag reduction in the future. The investigation concentrates on the measurement of the wake velocity and its relation...

A new type of tracer is making its entry in the scenario of wind-tunnel measurements: helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB). The present work discusses the main fluid-dynamic and optical properties of HFSB to evaluate their use for quantitative measurements in aerodynamic experiments.<br/>In the past three decades, particle image velocimetry (PIV)...

The fundamental properties of computed flow fields using particle imaging velocimetry (PIV) have been investigated, viewing PIV processing as a black box without going in detail into algorithmic details. PIV processing can be analyzed using a linear filter model, i.e. assuming that the computed displacement field is the result of some spatial...
