Guiding Principles for Use of PIV

Experimental arrangement for planar 2C-2D PIV in a wind tunnel.

Due to the modularity of the components of PIV systems, it is possible to start research using PIV with a simple 2C-2D system and to expand it in different steps to a full 3C-3D system, depending on the particular requirements, available budget and experience with PIV.

The paper ‚Guiding Principles for Use of PIV‘ discusses some considerations related to the foresighted planning of the possible future use and upgrade of a PIV system with increasing complexity of requirements.
