Evaluation of a Basic Doppler Global Velocimetry System 951427
A basic one-component Doppler Global Velocimetry (DGV) system has been developed at Wichita State University. This system was evaluated on a round axisymmetric jet. The results are compared with measurements made using traditional Constant Temperature Anemometry (CTA) and Preston tube measurements at 3.2, 9.6 and 16.0 jet exit diameters downstream and along the jet centerline. The DGV results show similar trends to these measurements. Software corrections for camera misalignment, optical distortions, and laser frequency variations were necessary to assure data quality. Results indicate good agreement between the DGV and CTA measurements exist.
