Studies of Liquid Turbulence Using Double-Pulsed Particle Correlation
Particle Image Velocimetry has developed to the point where it is possible to apply the technique to a wide range of flow phenomena that are significant to engineering and science. A review of current research shows that most of these applications remain in the research laboratory, but the potential exists for expansion into less ideal environments in the near future. This paper describes two studies of liquid turbulence that have been done by PIV at the University of Illinois and summarizes results from these applications. We shall consider low Reynolds number turbulent channel flow and turbulent thermal convection.
