PHANTOMM flow tagging measurements in complex 3D flows Conference Paper uri icon

Using the PHANTOMM flow tagging technique we obtain quantitative measurements of velocity, as well as visualizations similar to those obtained with standard laser sheet fluorescence techniques, of the flow in a cylinder driven by a rotating end wall. In addition, the axisymmetric Navier-Stokes equations are solved numerically using a vorticity-stream function formulation. The computed flow is compared to measurements in order to evaluate and validate the PHANTOMM technique so that one can be confident of measurements in flow regimes where accurate computations are not available.
