Abstract:

Steps towards the implementation of a stereoscopic particle image velocimetry PIV system for the investigation of the orthogonal blade-vortex interaction are described. The design of the stereo PIV system used is described, and details of the Scheimpflug camera mounts are provided. The necessary changes to the image capture and calibration procedures are described, and brief details of the stereo PIV analysis are given. This is essential preparatory work for the experimental study of the orthogonal blade-vortex interaction using stereoscopic PIV to take place later in this project.
