Original study plan Master's programme Mechatronics 2022W
Objectives After successfully dealing with the contents of the course, students are able to
- apply different measurement methods of experimental fluid mechanics (particle image velocimetry, constant temperature anemometry, acoustic doppler velocimetry, etc.),
- to calibrate the necessary test setups accordingly, to evaluate the sources of error that occur and, if necessary, to carry out an error analysis,
- to analyze the results of point and area measurements and to understand the differences between mean and instantaneous flow fields and the resulting forces on bodies in the flow

The level of mathematical modeling and analysis of the mentioned topics is comparable to the level of the textbooks: Eckelmann: Einführung in die Strömungsmesstechnik, Teubner 1997 und Nitsche / Brunn: Strömungsmesstechnik, Springer 2006.
  • fundamental principles for measuring pressure, velocity and heat transfer in liquids and gases
  • advanced measurement techniques (hot wire anemometry, particle image velocimetry, acoustic doppler velocimetry etc.)
  • properties of laminar and turbulent flow fields
  • bluff body aerodynamics
Criteria for evaluation Preparation, participation, measurement reports
Methods Guided experiments, independent hands-on measurements, script for self-study preparation
