This paper describes a new time-resolved three-dimensional, three-component (3D-3C) measurement technique called wall-PIV. It was developed to assess near wall flow fields and shear rates near non-planar surfaces. The method is based on light absorption according to Beer– Lambert's law. The fluid containing a molecular dye and seeded with buoyant particles(More)
This chapter describes the development of a new time resolved 3D PIV technique for near wall flow field measurements. This measurement technique, called wall-PIV, is based on Beer-Lambert's law. It substitutes the classical PIV laser sheet by a diffuse, monochromatic full-field illumination that is limited to the near wall region by an absorbing molecular(More)
—A noninvasive continuous blood pressure measurement technique that has been developed lately requires precise control of the blood flow through a superficial artery. The flow is measured using ultrasound and influenced via manipulating the pressure inside an inflatable air balloon which is placed over the artery. This contribution is concerned with the(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral arterial vasospasm leads to delayed cerebral ischemia and constitutes the major delayed complication following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral vasospasm can be reduced by increased blood clearance from the subarachnoid space. Clinical pilot studies allow the hypothesis that the clearance of subarachnoid blood is facilitated(More)
