Some practical considerations

  • Tommaso Astarita
  • Giovanni Maria Carlomagno
Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID)


Initially, some pragmatic and utilitarian considerations that the authors presume useful while performing experimental procedures to study thermo-fluid-dynamics, especially with the heated thin foil technique, are presented. Then, some recent experimental tests obtained with the Laplacian sensor are reported and discussed together with the used procedure. In addition, the optical calibration of the infrared scanner, which may be compulsory when testing models of complex geometries, and the way to perform dual-band thermography, i.e. with two separate scanners working in different IR bands, are finally addressed.
