3D PIV System 23D PIV System

3D PIV system is based on the original 2D PIV system but uses the principle of stereoscopic imaging to add the third dimension. At least two sets of cameras view the test area from different angles and with the two sets of two-dimensional velocity vector components a third velocity vector component can be calculated within the test area. The image is first calibrated, and afterward this third velocity component can be evaluated.
