  • High-Speed 2D Polarization Camera For Measurement Of Stress In Transparent And Semi-Transparent Materials And Fluids
    High-Speed 2D Polarization Camera For Measurement Of Stress In Transparent And Semi-Transparent Materials And Fluids

    High-speed cameras have become an established tool in the modern workplace. Their ability to record at hundreds or thousands of frames per second for subsequent slow motion replay and analysis has made them an important tool for applications such as ballistics, materials testing, automotive safety testing, and fluidics. Their capabilities are significantly increased when they are coupled with innovative non-contact measurement techniques such as digital image correlation (DIC) to provide invaluable information as to what is occurring on the surface of a solid, or through particle image velocimetry (PIV) in a seeded fluid or gaseous flows.

  • Understanding The Dynamics Of Droplets And Turbulence

    Turbulent flows laced with particles can be found everywhere, and include fuel droplets in combustion engines, airborne pollen, and water droplets in clouds. Even though they have been studied often, questions still remain that have to do with the particles’ inertia prohibiting them from following turbulence flow, making the Navier-Stokes equations insufficient for solving their equations. This white paper presents a project studying the dynamics of inertial droplets in a turbulent flow in a well-controlled environment. Measurements of droplet size distribution and turbulent dispersion rate in this study are done with interferometric particle imaging (IPI) and phosphorescent tagging techniques.
