We use Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) and Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) laser flow measurement systems.
Also detailed velocity measurements (Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) or Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA)) are needed to determine the velocity distribution in the two-phase unsteady flow due to the compressed air entrainment into the water column.
Proposal also includes transformers, substation, permanent and temporary anemometry masts, new access tracks, upgrade of existing tracks and other associated development on land at Tynewydd and Maendy Farms, Gilfach Goch.
In particular, his two monographs on laser anemometry and on Pelton turbines have become standard texts in their fields.
The other option is to install a wind tower that uses anemometry to document wind speeds, says Miller.
However, it has conrmed it will be retaining its nearby Oshore Anemometry Platform and anticipates a close working relationship with the new developer.
Distributions of local velocity and turbulence intensity were measured at this location with a hot wire anemometry and an X-Y table.
Among the topics are the history of subsea optics, measuring hyperspectral underwater light fields, the optical assessment of harmful algal blooms, geometric optics and strategies for subsea imaging, laser Doppler anemometry and particle image velocimetry for marine environments, fiber optic sensors for subsea structural health monitoring, and underwater hyperspectral imagery to create biogeochmical maps of seafloor properties.
(1998) used laser Doppler anemometry to measure the flow generated by a disc turbine in aqueous solutions of polyacrylamide (PAA) (molecular weight: 5 x [10.sup.6] - 6 x [10.sup.6]) in a cylindrical tank.
Osler's results concerning anemometry were praised as the most important since meteorology had taken its place among the physical sciences.
