KHz Imaging Diagnostics for Tough, Practical Problems
KHz imaging diagnostics for combustion research, etc., have advanced rapidly in the past decade along with CMOS camera technology and laser systems. Indeed, in the past 10 years many technical papers have been published wherein kHz-rate (or high-speed) diagnostics such as planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) have been applied to a range of flowfields
(particularly reacting flowfields); furthermore, the complexity and sophistication of these high-speed-diagnostics experiments continues to increase at a rapid pace. This talk will summarize i) some recent advances in kHz imaging technology and diagnostics and ii) some of the uses of high-speed diagnostics for practical problems.
