Tomographic PIV - Propeller wake analysis

The one-day workshop will cover the base principles of tomographic PIV along with many of the practical considerations in its implementation. Imaging theory that relates measurement volume to working distance and aperture will be examined along with methods used to determine optimum seeding density and how that relates to final spatial velocity resolution. Volume self-calibration and various reconstruction algorithms will be presented. 3D cross-correlation, velocity extraction and data post-processing will be covered. A brief overview of several newly developed processing techniques will be discussed, as well as practical considerations and best practices gleaned from a range of application areas. Finally, a range of measurement cases will be shown.

Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided. If you have an interest in tomographic PIV and would like to participate please send an email to

A door prize drawing for an iPad will be made in the afternoon for those registered to attend.
