  7. Imaging, Filtered Light Scattering Velocity Diagnostic

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A2

    The boundary layer plays a critical role in aerodynamics, acting as a barrier to the transfer of momentum from the air to the flight vehicle. In-flight measurements of velocity fields in the boundary layer could be used to establish the transition point to turbulent flow. This Phase I SBIR project will investigate a novel method for imaging flow velocity based on filtered light scattering. It does ...
