Surveying Unsteady Flows by Means of Movie Sequences - A Case Study
Photographic surveying techniques and their results are presented for vortical pattern development in unsteady two-dimensional flows, which depends on a multitude of parameters that have heretofore hampered broad investigation, in order to delineate the more important parametric dependencies. Samples are given from 100 films representing over 2000 sequences consisting of 400,000 photographic frames. Attention is given to the problems posed by resolution of time and lateral dimensions, spanwise vortical structure, and the dependence of angle of attack on Reynolds number and flow geometry.
