Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a non-intrusive laser optical measurement technique for research and diagnostics into flow, turbulence, microfluidics, spray atomization, and combustion processes.

Dantec Dynamics offers a range of PIV solutions to suit a variety of research needs. Basic systems utilize a single camera to measure two velocity components in a plane. More advanced systems utilize multiple cameras to measure three velocity components either in a plane or in a volume.

High speed systems are available to study vortices. Furthermore, advanced features like uncertainty estimation and propagation that tell about the measurement quality, advanced post-processing routing for vortex detections, combined PIV / LIF / Shadow measurement, and pressure computations help to get most out of your data.


Advanced Analysis and Data Visualization

Our imaging software DynamicStudio comes with advanced analysis and visualization capabilities.
You can create quality 2D and 3D graphics and animations from your measured data.
For traceability and comfort, no exporting and re-importing of data is necessary; all data is retained in DynamicStudio.
Advanced analysis features and Post Processing routines in DynamicStudio offer lots of features that simplify the life of fluid mechanic experimentalists.

Examples

  • Adaptive PIV for easy, precise and fast planar PIV data analysis
  • Uncertainty estimation and propagation compute the uncertainty of each vector and can propagate it into velocity derivatives
  • Analysis sequences to build batch processing libraries
  • Pressure from PIV Add-on derives pressures from velocity fields
  • Easy visualization tools
  • Dynamic Masking Add-on to mask out moving objects
