Introduction and historical grounding

Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID)


The main purpose of this book is to examine ways of taking advantage of InfraRed Thermography (IRT) either for measuring wall convective heat fluxes, or for investigating flow field behaviour over complex body shapes. This is to better and quickly recognize as well as understand particular fluid dynamic behaviours, such as flow instabilities, flow separations and reattachments.
