A spatial correlation technique for estimating velocity fields using molecular tagging velocimetry (MTV)
- 280 Downloads
A direct spatial image correlation technique is presented for estimating the Lagrangian displacement vector from image pairs based on molecular tagging diagnostics. The procedure provides significant improvement in measurement accuracy compared to existing approaches for molecular tagging velocimetry (MTV) analysis. Furthermore, this technique is of more general utility in that it is able to accommodate other laser tagging patterns besides the usual grid arrangement. Simulations are performed to determine the effects of many experimental and processing issues on the sub-pixel accuracy of displacement estimates. The results provide guidelines for optimizing the implementation of MTV. Experimental data in support of this processing technique are provided.
