Advanced Flow Field Imaging in Fluid Mechanics
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) as well as Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) are recognized as the most powerful and practical diagnostic tools for flow field analysis in fluid dynamics applications. Instantaneous 2D and 3D flow images are measured with high spatial and temporal resolution.
Scalar Imaging in Mixing Fluids and Thermal Flows
LaVision’s FluidMaster laser imaging systems measure scalar flow properties such as concentration, mixture fraction, fluid composition and temperature in various fluid dynamical applications. For scalar laser imaging in fluids Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) is the most versatile and practical measurement technique featuring high signal levels and spectral selectivity.
(Laser) Imaging in Flames
LaVision‘s FlameMaster system family is designed to find new concepts for the realization of more efficient and cleaner combustion devices. These (laser) imaging systems are designed for multi-parameter measurements in all kind of flames with high spatial and temporal resolution.
Spray Imaging and Quality Control
LaVision’s SprayMaster imaging systems provide information on all relevant spray parameters in even the most complex spray application: complete geometrical spray characterization, liquid (vapor) mass and global droplet size distributions on laser light sheets, multiphase flow fields, mass flux, spray evaporation and propagation.
LaVision’s ParticleMaster imaging systems measure simultaneously size, shape and velocity of individual particles, droplets or bubbles dispersed in gas, liquid or multiphase flows. High-magnification shadow imaging with eye-safe LEDs or ultra-short laser pulses is applied giving confidence in the measurement method, as you can directly see the results of the particle imaging process.
StrainMaster from LaVision is a state-of-the-art, non-intrusive optical tool for shape, strain and deformation analysis of solid and granular subjects. StrainMaster combines the most advanced Digital Image Correlation (DIC) algorithms with the highest quality of hardware to provide a complete and easy to use instrument for materials analysis. A range of StrainMaster systems are available from portable field work systems to highly specialized lab versions.
LaVision’s state-of-the-art Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) software brings new depth to quantitative imaging analysis. DVC is not only capable of identifying defects and cracks before they are visible in the raw image, but is also able to quantify the full volume strain distribution and actual magnitudes of the material displacements surrounding discontinuities.
