The Reconstruction of Periodic Pressure Fields from Point Measurements 1999-01-0809

A new method for processing data from time-accurate point measurements has been developed in order to investigate periodic elements of unsteady flow fields. The technique synchronizes the phase of measurements taken at different locations using a reference signal and collapses the spectral peak of interest onto a single frequency. The technique has been applied to data gathered using a time-accurate 5-hole probe behind a two dimensional body exhibiting vortex shedding. It has been possible to generate a sequence of instantaneous pressure and velocity fields which show the shedding of vorticity and total pressure loss to form a vortex street.
