Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Simultaneous measurement of the fluctuating pressure and velocity field is performed combining a miniature static-pressure probe and a stereo-PIV. The static-pressure probe is placed just behind the velocity measuring plane illuminated by the laser sheet, and the instantaneous velocity field and the fluctuating pressure are measured simultaneously in a turbulent wing-tip vortex flow. The instantaneous pressure field is estimated by numerically solving a discrete two-dimensional Poisson equation for pressure. The result is compared with directly measured pressure for validation.
