Invitation to lectures on optical methods in fluid mechanics

12. November 2013

First lecture: Particle image velocimetry (PIV)
Conducted by Dr. Yannick Knapp, Institut Universitaire de Technologie d'Avignon, FR, Tuesday 26 November 2013 at 1 PM.
Lecture will present principles of PIV, an optical diagnostic method;describe components of measurement system and application of PIV in research of velocity field in fluid mechanics.You are welcome to discuss various aspects and issues related to PIV with the lecturer.

Second lecture: Atomization of liquids, laser optical diagnostics for fluid flow measurements
Conducted by Dr. Graham Wigley from Loughborough University, UK, on Wednesday 27 November 2013 at 1 PM.
First part of the lecture will be dedicated to mechanism of atomization of liquids (basic concepts in atomization, primary and secondary decomposition). The other half of the lecture will focus on theoretical principles of optical diagnostics and its application in fluid mechanics.Special attention will be paid to Doppler methods (LDA and PDA) and their application in spray diagnostics.Visualization methods and image data processing methods will also be discussed.

Both lectures will be conducted in English language and they will take place at Department of Thermodynamics and Environmental Engineering, Energy Institute, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology, room number A2/311, Technická 2, Brno.
Lectures will be followed by field trip to the faculty laboratories with practical example of the discussed experimental methods (PIV, LDA, PDA) and application of the methods on specific issues in fluid mechanics.Both lectures will take approximately 2-3 hours, including the field trips.
Students, academics and industry partners are welcome.
Please, register in advance at the following email address as the space is limited
