Lecture Series on Experimental Fluid Dynamics: Dr. Dennis van der Voort

Lecture Series on Experimental Fluid Dynamics

Dr. Dennis van der Voort

Michigan Technological University and Eindhoven University of Technology.

Weekly beginning September 14, 2017

Thursday, 1:00 PM-2:00 PM, Fisher Hall – 131

Sponsored by the Elizabeth and Richard Henes Center for Quantum Phenomena and the Department of Physics, Michigan Technological University.

Abstract

A series of lectures covering the basics and measurement protocols of experimental techniques in fluid dynamics, emphasizing laser and optical methods. The lectures will cover Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), both in general and in relation to turbulence measurements, as well as Laser-induced Fluorescence/Phosphorescence (LIF/LIP), Schlieren, and Schadowgraphy. A previously completed course in basic fluid mechanics is recommended, but not required.
