Velocity Measurements

Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID)


Velocity is one of the most important parameter in fluid mechanics due to its cardinal influence on the transport phenomena of heat and mass. Many optical techniques were implemented for velocity measurements. The most highly developed and important among them is laser Doppler velocimetry, LDA, see for instance, [270–272].
