PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry)

Course ID: PAC1007
Pre-Req: PCC0001/PCC0002

Next Course Offering: TBD

PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) is an non-invasive imaging methodology used to visualize and quantify flow fields. Some applications include determining vorticity from an object in a flow, quantifying turbulence caused by a airfoil, or observing disturbances in microflows within microfluidic devices.

This introductory short course is intended for potential and current users of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The goal is to provide users a guide to best practices on setting up the high-speed camera, and configuring specific software packages. This course will be partly guided by Vision Research and a PIV software provider.

Abbreviated Syllabus:

  • Theoretical Foundation of Particle Image Velocimetry
  • Review HS Camera and Basic Functionality 
  • Key Signals From The Camera
  • Timing, Timestamps, Timecodes, Synchronization 
  • Synchronizing Frames with Data Streams
  • Advanced Triggering Techniques 
  • Sample Capture, Export, and Process of PIV Data
  • Software Options for Performing PIV
