Abstract

A technique has been developed to extract velocity vectors from images of streamline flows. Both image processing techniques and knowledge of fluid mechanics have been used in extracting the velocity vectors. A method of camera calibration has been used to take into account parameters like lens distortion, camera orientation etc. This calibration will help in obtaining more accurate quantitative results from the visualized flow field. The technique is demonstrated using streamlined Hele-Shaw flow.
