Shadow Sizing Add-On

This Add-On bundles the most important methods to analyze shadow images for particle characterization. From bubbly flows, sprays, or general multiphase flows; image processing/analysis provides in-depth information otherwise not accessible like in point-measurement techniques (wire probes, PDA).

By leveraging state-of-the-art image processing, it is possible to accurately detect, track, and extract useful parameters from the imaged particles. Moreover, the built-in post-processing tools allow quick visualization and key statistics calculations, for either quick diagnostics or custom analyses using external tools.

Key benefits:

  • State-of-the-art image processing techniques for efficient computations
  • Adaptive thresholding able to recognize particles in the most difficult conditions
  • Size and depth-of-field calibrations for increased accuracy and precision
  • Intuitive UI with minimum input allowing for reliable and repeatable results
  • Key particle statistics are calculated automatically for quick diagnostics
  • Export data in commonly used formats for custom post-processing and analysis
  • Import and work with external shadow images in DynamicStudio
