|Department||Mechanical and Process Engineering|
|151-0105-00L||Imaging in Fluid Dynamics|
Note: The previous course title until HS21 "Quantitative Flow Visualization"
|4 credits||3G||F. Coletti|
|Abstract||This is a laboratory-based course on imaging techniques for the measurement of fluid flow properties. Modern approaches are presented, including particle image velocimetry and particle tracking velocimetry, applied in various experimental facilities. Students obtain first-hand experience with such techniques in laboratory sessions, using high-speed/high-resolution cameras in wind/water tunnels.|
|Objective||Knowledge of the working principles of modern flow imaging and velocimetry|
Understanding of hardware and software requirements to achieve desired spatio-temporal resolution.
Ability to carry out imaging experiments in actual laboratory flows, and interpreting meaningfully the results.
|Content||Basics of optical diagnostics.|
Conception of laboratory flow experiment to be characterized by imaging, with focus on the spatial and temporal scales at play.
Laboratory experiments including:
- characterization of vortex shedding by wake visualization and liquid crystal thermography.
- Eulerian flow field in turbulent flow by particle image velocimetry
- Lagrangian flow field in turbulent flow by particle tracking velocimetry
- fluid-structure interaction in wind tunnel by high-speed imaging.
|Lecture notes||Handouts will be made available.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Prerequisites: Fluid Dynamics, basic programming skills.|

|151-0123-00L||Experimental Methods for Engineers||4 credits||2V + 2U||D. J. Norris, F. Coletti, M. Lukatskaya, A. Manera, G. Nagamine Gomez, B. Schuermans, O. Supponen, M. Tibbitt|
|Abstract||The course presents an overview of measurement tasks in engineering environments. Different concepts for the acquisition and processing of typical measurement quantities are introduced. Following an initial in-class introduction, laboratory exercises from different application areas (especially in thermofluidics, energy, and process engineering) are attended by students in small groups.|
|Objective||Introduction to various aspects of measurement techniques, with particular emphasis on thermo-fluidic, energy, and process-engineering applications.|
Understanding of various sensing technologies and analysis procedures.
Exposure to typical experiments, diagnostics hardware, data acquisition, and processing.
Study of applications in the laboratory.
Fundamentals of scientific documentation and reporting.
|Content||In-class introduction to representative measurement techniques in the research areas of the participating institutes (fluid dynamics, energy technology, process engineering)|
Student participation in 8-10 laboratory experiments (study groups of 3-5 students, dependent on the number of course participants and available experiments)
Lab reports for all attended experiments have to be submitted by the study groups. A final exam evaluates the acquired knowledge individually.
|Lecture notes||Presentations, handouts, and instructions are provided for each experiment.|
