13th International Symposium on Particle Image Velocimetry (ISPIV2019)

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is an advanced optical measurement technique for non-intrusive analysis of microscopic and macroscopic flow fields in transparent fluids with high resolution. Thanks to the enormous developments in recent years in the fields of lasers, light emitting diodes (LEDs), digital cameras, computer performance, memory capacity, and processing algorithms, very precise measurements are now possible in many research areas and the field of application is being continuously expanded. Due to its performance and efficiency, PIV is also increasingly used in industry to answer various research questions. The technique can be extended by complementary techniques (e.g. laser-induced fluorescence) to simultaneously measure scalars such as concentration, pressure and temperature. At the same time, the measured 2D or 3D flow fields can be used to determine physical quantities that cannot be measured with other techniques. The measurement technology thus provides deep insights into the flow phenomena, no matter how high the flow velocities are.
This symposium brings together leading PIV experts and users from all over the world to exchange and discuss the latest innovative developments and applications of the technology. This is the 13th edition of this biannual symposium series, following successful previous symposia in Busan (Korea, 2017) and Santa Barbara (CA, USA, 2015).
