  • Quantitative and nonintrusive fluid velocity and turbulence measurements obtained using laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) in a circular jet that is positioned nonconcentrically in a confining pipe are presented. The experimental findings are compared with the results obtained by the finite-element computational simulation of the flow. The measured and predicted contours of the time-averaged axial velocity reveal the presence of a three-dimensional (3-D) asymmetric reverse-flow region, with its radial and circumferential extent depending on the axial position and the eccentricity ratio. Due to the weakened radial mixing and spreading of the jet for the higher eccentricities, the transition to the fullymore » developed state is delayed for the high eccentricity cases. Measured and predicted contours of the axial turbulence fluctuations exhibit the ringlike distribution, although it is observed in an offset position for a given eccentricity ratio. At the downstream stations, the ringlike distribution tends to become more symmetric. The basic phenomena of flow reversal, preferential mixing, and shear layer growth are recovered by the computational predictions based on the high-Reynolds-number turbulence model. The time-averaged velocity measurements compare well with the predictions, whereas only qualitative comparison can be observed between the measured and predicted turbulence fluctuations.« less
  • An optical Doppler tomography (ODT) system that permits imaging of fluid flow velocity in highly scattering media is described. ODT combines Doppler velocimetry with the high spatial resolution of low-coherence optical interferometry to measure fluid flow velocity at discrete spatial locations. Tomographic imaging of particle flow velocity within a circular conduit submerged 1mm below the surface in a highly scattering phantom of Intralipid is demonstrated. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital Optical Society of America}
  • Ultrafast line-imaging velocity interferometer system for any reflector and streaked optical pyrometry are now commonly used to obtain high precision equation of state and electronic transport data under dynamic compression at major high energy density science facilities. We describe a simple way to improve distinguishing phase transformation signatures from other signals when monitoring decaying shock waves. The line-imaging capability of these optical diagnostics offers additional supporting evidence to the assignment of particular anomalies—such as plateaus or reversals—to the occurrence of a phase transition along the Hugoniot. We illustrate the discussion with two example datasets collected during laser driven shock compressionmore » of quartz and stishovite.« less
  • The flow field was measured near the exit of an axial-flow spiral-inducer pump impeller at design and off-design conditions. Laser-Doppler velocimetry was employed to define the blade-to-blade velocity distribution inside and outside the rotating impeller passage near the trailing edge. The observed variation of velocity and flow angle revealed a strong secondary flow, of a double vortex form, at the design flow rate and a developing hub separation zone at lower flow rates. The observed rearrangement of the flow field between the closely spaced locations upstream and downstream of the trailing edge is believed to be linked to the developingmore » recirculation zone. Distributed deviation angles are presented for the design flow rate and overall values for all flow rates. 8 refs.« less
