LaVision is offering a one-day workshop on Tomographic PIV prior to the 70h Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics

Monday, 4. September 2017

The workshop is taking place in the Hyatt Regency hotel, Denver on November, 18th. The participation is free.

The one-day workshop will cover the principles of Tomographic PIV and Volumetric Lagrangian Particle Tracking (Shake-the-Box (STB)) along with practical considerations in their implementation. Imaging theory that relates measurement volume to working distance and aperture will be examined along with methods used to determine optimum seeding density and spatial velocity resolution. Volume self-calibration and reconstruction algorithms will be presented along with a discussion of advanced processing techniques such as sequential motion tracking enhancement (SMTE). 3D cross-correlation, velocity extraction and data post processing will also be covered. Practical considerations and best practices acquired from a range of application areas will be discussed along with presentation of a range of measurement covering a range of fluid dynamic phenomena. Recommendations for designing a volumetric PIV experiment will be presented with ample time for discussions about individual applications during the breaks and immediately after the conclusion of the course.
