Particle Tracking in Turbulent Flows

  • R. J. Perkins

Particle tracking has been used for many years to follow the trajectories of individual particles or bubbles, and to investigate the structure of velocity fields. Its usefulness has been limited by the difficulty of analysing many photographs, but advances in computing and image processing hardware now make it possible to do this automatically.
