LDV 3D point measurements in 2020 in the Ifremer wave-current flume tank!

In December 2019, a new three-component laser velocimetry (LDV) was installed in the Ifremer wave-current flume tank.

After a successful installation of the automated displacement systems and the new three-component laser velocimetry (LDV) system in December 2019, the first flow measurements could be launched. Thanks to this new device, we will have access to all of the speed components and therefore to the complete Reynolds tensor. From now on, turbulent flows will have no more secrets!

Note: this new device was developed in collaboration with the companies MCII and Dantec, and financed through the CPER MARCO.
