Unsteady two- and three-dimensional flow structure at leading- and trailing-edges of bodies can be characterized effectively using recently developed techniques for acquisition and interpretation of flow visualization. The techniques addressed herein include flow image-surface pressure correlations three-dimensional reconstruction of flow structure from flow images and interactive interpretation of flow images with theoretical simulations. These techniques can be employed in conjunction with visual correlation and ensemble-averaging, both within a given image and between images recognition of patterns of flow structure from images and estimates of velocity eigenfunctions from images.
