Introduction to experimental techniques, data collection, and data analysis, in particular as they pertain to fluid flows. Introduces theory and use of analog transducers, acoustic Doppler velocimetry (ADV), full-field (2-D) quantitative imaging techniques such as particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser induced fluorescence (LIF). Additional topics include computer-based experimental control, analog and digital data acquisition, discrete sampling theory, digital signal processing, and uncertainty analysis. The canonical flows of the turbulent flat plate boundary layer and the neutrally buoyant turbulent round jet are introduced theoretically and the subject of three major laboratory experiments using ADV, PIV and LIF. There is a final group project on a flow of the students choosing.

When Offered Spring (offered alternate years).

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CEE 3310, CEE 3040 or equivalents.
