Experiments in Fluids (Impact Factor: 1.91). 04/2009; 46(4):643-658. DOI: 10.1007/s00348-008-0589-y

ABSTRACT A theoretical analysis of the spatial resolution in terms of modulation transfer function of the Stereo PIV technique with
and without the correction of the misalignment error is performed, and the results show that some wavelengths of the flow
field can be significantly dephased and modulated. A performance assessment has been conducted with both synthetic and real
images and shows a good agreement with the theoretical analysis. The reconstruction of the three-dimensional displacement
field is achieved using both the methods proposed by Soloff et al. (Meas Sci Technol 8:1441–1454, 1997) and by Willert (Meas Sci Technol 8:1465–1479, 1997).

    ABSTRACT: This work describes a temperature and emissivity measurement methodology that applies the multi-wavelength pyrometry principle to IR thermography using two dual band IR cameras in a stereo arrangement. The four radiation distributions measured by the IR cameras are rebuilt on the object surface mesh by means of the pinhole camera model and are used to write a system of equations in which emissivities and temperatures are unknown quantities. By solving the system, the temperature and directional emissivity of the material under test can be measured for each wavelength band.

    ABSTRACT: form only given. Stability of radiographic spot has been under intensive study in recent years because of its importance in high-dose flash X-ray radiography. We have investigated a concept of placing a gas cell in front of the target to improve the stability of the spot size. The idea is to use the incoming electron beam to ionize the gas cell to a favorable density (in a time scale of pulse rise time), which causes charge and current neutralization on the electron beam. For an electron beam such as the DARHT beam (2 kA and 20 MeV), which is well below the Alfven current limit, we believe that there is an intermediate gas pressure regime where the stable beam propagation can be achieved. In our study, we first use a simple rate equation to calculate the ionization of the gas cell by the DAHRT beam. The model includes avalanche and recombination of the ionized electrons.

    ABSTRACT: A theoretical model to determine the effect of the size of the interrogation window in particle image velocimetry measurements of turbulent flows is presented. The error introduced by the window size in two-point velocity statistics, including velocity autocovariance and structure functions, is derived for flows that are homogeneous within a 2D plane or 3D volume. This error model is more general than those previously discussed in the literature and provides a more direct method of correcting biases in experimental data. Within this model framework, simple polynomial approximations are proposed to provide a quick estimation of the effect of the averaging on these statistics. The error model and its polynomial approximation are validated using statistics of homogeneous isotropic turbulence obtained in a physical experiment and in a direct numerical simulation. The results demonstrate that the present formulation is able to correctly estimate the turbulence statistics, even in the case of strong smoothing due to a large interrogation window. We discuss how to use these results to correct experimental data and to aid the comparison of numerical results with laboratory data.
