Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is an optical method of flow
visualization used in education and research. It is used to obtain instantaneous
velocity measurements and related properties in fluids. Dr Edward Ransley MA
MSci (Hons) MSc PhD, Researcher with the Faculty of Science and Engineering has
used PIV in the COAST Lab to great effect as these images and video’s
