The objective of this course is to give the student an overview of laser based flow measurement techniques in the field of fluid mechanics. Particle Image Velocimetry and Laser Doppler Velocimetry are introduced by theoretical lectures and hands-on experiments. Through the experiments, the students will have the possibility to explore the advantages and limitations of those techniques. As experimental sessions are an important part of this course, the participants must work together in groups of max 4-5 persons. Laboratory safety and data reduction/analysis are offered in addition to the theoretical and experimental aspects.

Prerequisites: Participants must have fundamental knowledge on fluid mechanics and simple data acquisition.

Form of evaluation: The participants must hand in mini-projects in groups and complete a multiple-choice test.

Important information concerning PhD courses:
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
