PIV system variation

PIV system variation

Many types of PIV systems, such as standard 2D-PIV,Stereo 3D-PIV, micro PIV, Time resolved PIV, etc., are available. Each system consists of different components.
The integrated PIV software Koncerto controls all the components and analyze the velocity field.

Standard 2D-PIV

Standard 2D-PIV

The 2D-PIV system measures the in-plane two-dimensional velocity component irradiated on the laser light sheet. Frame Straddling allows for all speed ranges. Moreover, with the latest PIV analysis algorithm, it is possible to accurately analyze a wide range of speeds from low speed to high speed at the same time.It is compatible with various types of cameras and laser equipments, making it possible to construct any type of PIV system.Capable of measuring 2 velocity components (u and v) in a plane defined by the laser light sheet. It consists of a double pulse laser, a double shutter camera, BZ-60 light sheet optics, TT1680 timing controller, Koncerto software, and PC. Typical time resolution is 10 Hz.

Features

Three component speed can be measured

In the stereo three-dimensional PIV, it is possible to measure three components of velocity in the light seat surface.
(Such a three-component velocity vector map in a two-dimensional plane is called a 2D3C format.)

Since flow is a three-dimensional movement, absolute value can be known by measuring three components.

Flexible camera layout

In the stereo PIV, you can place two cameras freely.
Besides the basic arrangement that installs two cameras on one side with respect to the laser light sheet, it is also possible to arrange them on both sides of the laser sheet by sandwiching.
Since there is no problem even if the installation angle of each camera is different, there are merits such as arranging the camera avoiding obstacles and measuring the wider area by using forward scattering.

Extensive measurement by forward scattering

Scattered light from fine particles with a diameter of several microns is called Mie scattering, and the scattered light intensity differs greatly depending on the scattering direction.
The front of the light source is particularly strong, and there is a place where the luminance is high even in the diagonally backward direction.
For forward scattering, much stronger scattered light can be obtained than 90 degrees side scatter.
In the stereo PIV, it is possible to measure a wide area by placing a high resolution camera in a position where it can receive forward scattering.
