Handbook Of Flow Visualization | Taylor & Francis GroupWind tunnel test and computational fluid dynamics have been used for the aerodynamics design of the aircraft. Especially, in the case of wind tunnel test, the scale model which has various sensors inside has been installed in the wind tunnel, and 6 component force and moment, surface pressure and hinge moment of the control surface have been measured in the wind tunnel test. It is indispensable for the aerodynamics design to understand the flow phenomenon around the aircraft correctly. Therefore, the flow visualization techniques have been utilized in the aircraft development wind tunnel test since a long time ago. This paper summarizes the typical examples of traditional and latest flow visualization techniques in the aircraft development wind tunnel test. Also, the expected flow visualization technique in the future is described in this paper. Transactions of the Visualization Society of Japan.
Flow Visualization in a Water Channel
T Publication 2nd ed. Many of the chapters have been revised and updated to take into consideration recent changes in a number of flow visualization and measurement techniques, including an updated high quality flow gallery. Unique among similar publications, this book focuses on the practical rather than theoretical aspects.
Fluid Flow Visualization
Flow visualization or flow visualisation in fluid dynamics is used to make the flow patterns visible, in order to get qualitative or quantitative information on them. Flow visualization is the art of making flow patterns visible. Most fluids air, water, etc. Historically, such methods included experimental methods. With the development of computer models and CFD simulating flow processes e. In experimental fluid dynamics , flows are visualized by three methods:. In scientific visualization flows are visualized with two main methods:.
With contributions from some of the world's leading experts, the second edition of this classic reference compiles all major techniques of flow visualization and demonstrates their applications in all fields of science and technology. A new chapter has been added that covers flow visualization applications in large wide tunnels for airplane and automobile testing. Several important examples of applications are included. A second new chapter details the use of infrared IR cameras for detecting and observing the boundary layer transition in industrial wind tunnels and flight testing of commercial transport airplanes. A final new chapter has been added on multiphase flow and pulsed-light velocimetry.
