Dual-plane PIV technique to resolve complete velocity gradient tensor in a turbulent boundary layer

Abstract

Simultaneous dual-plane PIV experiments were performed in streamwise-spanwise planes in the log region of a turbulent boundary layer at a moderate Reynolds number (Reτ ∼ 1100). The acquired datasets were used to resolve all 9 velocity gradients from which the complete vorticity vector and other invariant quantities like 3-D swirl strength were computed… (More)
