Reconstructing the fluid flow by tracking of large particles
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
All the methods which estimate the unperturbed fluid flow velocity relying on particle suspensions address the same question: How can the fluid velocity be computed measuring the particles trajectory and/or their velocities? The tracking of a few large density-mismatched particles is here used to efficiently and accurately reconstruct the background fluid flow. Approximating the particulate phase space and taking the limit of vanishing Stokes number St -> 0, we retrieve the background flow for three test cases: a shear flow near a wall, a rigid-body vortex, and a strained vortex. The major advantages and the potentials of this approach are discussed in the end, highlighting how to overcome the classic shortcomings of experimental measurements faced for near-boundaries particle tracking.
