Fluid-Structure Interaction Hardware

FSI system: PIV camera lower left, PIV light sheet illumination from below, DIC cameras upper right,
DIC illumination from above the DIC cameras.

Fluid-Structure Interaction Hardware

The hardware required for PIV and DIC is almost the same.
A stereo PIV system with two cameras can be used for DIC as well, possibly with a different light source.
For simultaneous PIV and DIC, you need at least one camera for the PIV and two cameras for the DIC. The illumination for PIV is typically a laser, whereas the DIC light source is an LED. All cameras and light sources can be controlled from the same Synchronizer.
PIV and DIC data can be separated either by a slight time difference between the acquisition of the images, or by different wavelengths of the light sources, and corresponding filters on the cameras.
