Stickland, M.T. and Scanlon, T.J. and Fernandez-Francos, J. and Blanco, E. (2003) Measurement of rotating flows using PIV and image derotation. Experiments in Fluids, 34 (2). pp. 304-306. ISSN 0723-4864

This paper describes the use of a rotating all-mirror image derotator system, high-speed video and particle image velocimetry (PIV) to visualise and quantitatively examine the flow patterns between the blades of a centrifugal impeller. The flow field relative to the moving centrifugal impeller is presented.
