Modal Wavelets Analysis to Gas-Liquid Two Phase Flow PIV Images Conference Paper uri icon


  • A modal wavelet transform, which overcomes the intrinsic data number limitation of power of two to conventional wavelet transform, has been applied to analysis of pseudo and real bubbly flow PIV images. The modal wavelet transform is compared with the discrete wavelet transform in order to select the best base function among Neumann, Dirichlet and Green function types base functions. Consequently, it is verified that Neumann type base function is the best because the correlation of Neumann type base function is the highest. From the result of wavelet analysis of the real bubbly flow PIV image, as the relative velocity is higher, the dominant eddy scale becomes smaller. The extraction modal wavelet level depends on the base function.
