particle image velocimetry (PIV)

A whole-flow-field technique providing instantaneous velocity vector measurements in a cross-section of a flow that is seeded with micron-sized particles. CCD or CMOS cameras and laser light sheets produce real-time velocity maps by measuring the distance that particles fly within two successive laser light pulses.
