Abstract

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) was used to measure mean flow and turbulence characteristics in the separated flow behind a rearward facing step. The confidence limits characterising estimates of mean velocity and turbulence intensity obtained by PIV are discussed. The relevance of background turbulence levels and sample size in determining these limits is considered. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
