The fourth scientific course (SC5) “Advanced Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements“ was organised after M24 meeting, on April 6th – 8th, 2022. There was an introductory lecture conducted by dr. Ferdinand Schrijer (TU Delft). Most of the training was practical excercises, during which the ESRs were supervised by dr. Ferdinand Schrijer and Alessandro D’Aguanno (TU Delft). In addition the lecture “The role of combustion in greening the future of aviation” was conducted by Dr. Arvind Gangoli Rao. Morevoer laboratories of TU Delft that were not part of the training excercises were visited by ESRs.
The ESRs learned and experimented with two measurement techniques – Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Schlieren (including Background Oriented Schlieren).
