Symposium B-3: Quantitative Imaging Methods in Fluid Mechanics: from lighting to enlightenment

(Mechanics of Fluids and Thermal Systems)

Symposium Organizers:

Jesse Belden, Naval Undersea Warfare Center-Newport

John Charonko, Los Alamos National Laboratory

Symposium Technical Description

Image-based measurement techniques have proved invaluable in fluid and thermal systems research.  Still, many applications demand innovative quantitative imaging methods to resolve underserved physics.  These techniques may involve unique experimental design, non-traditional hardware and/or novel approaches to data analysis and interpretation.  This symposium brings together researchers spanning this continuum of quantitative imaging methods under the common theme of innovation for physical insight.  Topics invited for this symposium include but are not limited to:

  • Development of new quantitative imaging methods, and innovative applications
  • Computational imaging
  • Quantifying uncertainty, model verification & validation
  • Physics-based analysis
  • Data-driven modeling
