Endoscopic PIV

PIV measurements in IC engines, turbo machinery or pumps usually require the manufacturing of costly prototypes with large windows for optical access. LaVision’s FlowMaster Endoscopic PIV systems need less modifications for such experiments because only 8 mm small holes are needed for the laser beam and the camera viewing port, respectively.
The laser endoscope generates the light sheet and is designed to fit at the front end of the articulated laser guiding arm. The camera endoscope is directly attached to the lens of the PIV camera.
