Two-phase flow test facility was constructed to study the applicability of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Wire-Mesh Sensors (WMS) for different types of single- and two-phase flows
Test facility was designed in such a way that it enables to conduct experiments at any inclination of the flow channel. Test facility will be also used for demonstrational and educational purposes. Transparency of the channel walls and the use of WMSs offer students great possibilities to get better understanding on the physics behind the flow behavior. Test section is equipped with in-house manufactured WMSs (32 × 32 wires). The sensors are recording the flow at 5000 frames/s. In addition, special channel section was designed and constructed that enables High-Speed Camera and PIV measurements by minimizing the optical distortions.
