Flow Field Imaging in Flames

LaVision’s laser imaging systems for flow field imaging are called FlowMaster and are based on state-of-the-art Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) techniques.

Turbulent combustion is strongly influenced by flow-chemistry interactions. High speed laser imaging applying simultaneously PIV and OH-PLIF in the same light sheet plane allows the investigation of such flow-flame interactions present in e.g. ignition and flame extinction processes. LaVision’s laser imaging concept supports in a unique way such simultaneous PIV and PLIF measurements based on our proven FlowMaster and FlameMaster systems both using the same DaVis platform for synchronized image recording and data processing.
