Analysis of Simultaneous Velocity and Density Distributions for High-Speed CO2 Flow Using Particle Image Velocimetry and Digital Speckle Tomography
Velocity and density distributions of a high-speed and initial CO2 jet flow have been analyzed simultaneously by a developed three-dimensional digital speckle tomography and a particle image velocimetry (PIV). Three high-speed cameras have been used for the tomography and the PIV since a shape of a nozzle for the jet flow is asymmetric and the initial flow is fast and unsteady. The speckle movements between no flow and CO2 jet flow have been obtained by a cross-correlation tracking method so that those distances can be transferred to deflection angles of laser rays for density gradients. The three-dimensional density fields for the high-speed CO2 jet flow have been reconstructed from the deflection angles by the real-time tomography method, and the two-dimensional velocity fields have been calculated by the PIV method simultaneously.
