I am just about to go into my 3rd year of my Mechanical Engineering Degree and have decided to do a project with the following description:
"Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) is a non-intrusive technique used to
measure flow velocities and turbulence quantities in a fluid flow. The
objective of this project is to carry out velocity measurements in a
suitable flow arrangement (e.g. wall jet, free jet) using the LDA system
and then make comparisons with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
predictions. The LDA system uses a Class 4 Argon-Ion laser and although the
measurements will be made under guidance from the supervisor, students
applying for this project need to have a practical background and will be
trained in laser safety."
I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out and provide any good links or information that I could use to do some background reading for my project and literature review?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
