Meet the FlowPike – MARIN’s latest development in collaboration with LaVision
Monday, 30. November 2020
LaVision is proud to be involved as PIV system supplier for MARIN’s latest development: the unique large-scale Stereo-PIV measurement device ‘FlowPike’ contains a combination of water-cooled PIV cameras and a double-pulse laser head, along with sophisticated mechanics in a water-tight enclosure to be used for flow measurements on real ships.
In combination with our DaVis software the fully remote-controllable and pre-calibrated system will deliver reference flow data for the validation of CFD calculations. For the first time, this flow data will be acquired under full size conditions on a real ship. First basin tests at MARIN in Wageningen were very successful and the system is ready for its first mission.
