An important feature of PIV is that a reliable basis of experimental flow field data is provided for direct comparison with numerical calculations and hence, for validation of computer codes.
During the last years an increasing number of scientists have started to utilize the PIV technique to investigate the instantaneous structure of velocity fields in various areas of fluid mechanics. A large number of different approaches for the recording and evaluation of PIV images have been described in literature.
This course, which is the 25th course on PIV since 1993 organized by DLR, will mainly concentrate on those aspects of the theory of PIV relevant to applications. Besides giving lectures on the fundamental aspects, special emphasis is placed on the presentation of practical and reliable solutions of problems which are faced during the implementation of this technique in wind tunnels and other test facilities.
During practice the participants will have the opportunity to carry out the recording and the evaluation of PIV images by themselves in small groups. Matured developments of the PIV technique such as Stereo PIV, Time Resolved PIV, Micro PIV and recent innovations in 3D(t)-PIV/4D-PTV (tomographic and digital holographic PIV, Shake-The-Box) will be discussed and demonstrated.
The main interest of today's research in fluid mechanics is more and more directed to problems where unsteady and separated flows are predominant. For investigations of flow fields with pronounced spatial structures and/or rapid temporal or spatial changes (transition from laminar to turbulent flow, coherent structures, pitching airfoils in transonic flows with shocks, rotors, test facilities with short run time, etc.) experimental techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) are required which allow to capture the flow velocity of large flow fields instantaneously
Lectures (4 half days) and experiments or demonstrations in the laboratory (5 half days) will run from 8:30 to 12:30 from Monday to Friday and from 13:30 to 16:30 from Monday to Thursday, respectively. All presentations will be given in English.
A complete set of course notes together with the book 'Particle Image Velocimetry - A Practical Guide (2nd Edition)' (published by Springer, 2007) and an USB-stick of proceedings of the PIV'15 symposium will be distributed to the participants at registration.
An exhibition of equipment from major manufacturers of PIV systems will take place from March 23 to 24, 2017.
Prof. Michel Stanislas, Laboratoire de Mécanique de Lille, France, is working in the field of Flow Visualization and Particle Image Velocimetry. Prof. Stanislas will present the lectures on the optical aspects of PIV.
Prof. Jerry Westerweel, Delft University of Technology (TUD), The Netherlands, will discuss the theoretical basis of the digital PIV technique.
Dr. Christian Poelma, TUD, will discuss combined PIV/LIF and Micro PIV in his lectures.
Prof. Christian Kähler, BW Universität München, will discuss Stereo and Multi-plane PIV aspects and the advances in Time Resolved- and long range Micro PIV.
Dr. Gerd Gülker, Carl von Ossietzky Universität, Oldenburg, Germany, is working in the field of Holography and Particle Image Velocimetry and will present the lectures on (digital) holographic PIV.
Dr. Andreas Schröder, Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, DLR, Göttingen, will organize the PIV course, which was established in 1993 by Dr. Jürgen Kompenhans. In the past Prof. Markus Raffel and Dr. Christian Willert (now working in DLR's Institute of Propulsion Technology) have provided the foundations of PIV application in wind tunnels.
Together with Dr. Klaus Ehrenfried, Dr. Boleslaw Stasicki, Dr. Reinhard Geisler, Dr. Daniel Schanz, Dr. Matteo Novara, Dr. Florian Huhn, Dipl.-Ing. Janos Agocs, Dipl.-Ing. Andre Bauknecht and Dr. Christian Wolf from DLR, and Dipl.-Ing. Christina Heßeling from Oldenburg University they will present their knowledge and experience in different areas of the PIV technique such as tracer particles, illumination, recording, evaluation, data presentation, 3D(t)-PIV / 4D-PTV and other 3C-PIV techniques.
This course is mainly intended for engineers, scientists and students, who have already some basic knowledge of the PIV technique and have just started to utilize PIV for their special industrial or scientific applications or plan to do so in near future. During the course many problems arising in the recording and evaluation of PIV images will be treated - in theory as well as in practice.
