Research Institution
Over the past 20 years a variety of image-based experimental tools, such as PSP/TSP, PIV, and VMD which offer increased productivity, have been developed for wind tunnels. While each of these techniques can be used individually, rapidly combining the data from these tools would bring added value to the data analysis process. This capability of rapid data fusion is critical to enable understanding of the flow field, and therefore, facilitate quick and accurate decision making. Developing a software package for fusion of data from multiple experimental and computational formats is the focus of this proposal. While this type of data fusion can be very useful, it is often a time consuming process. Generally, each experimental technique uses unique data processing software, and produces data with a unique data format. Furthermore, combining this data with computational results requires mapping data between the experimental surface mesh and the computational mesh. Currently, the data fusion process requires significant operator input, and that operator must have extensive knowledge of each experimental and computational technique. The goal of this program is to develop a suite of Open Source software to facilitate this data fusion process for an array of experimental techniques.
