Volumetric flow field measurements can now be realized by multiple techniques. Each has it's strengths and weaknesses. In addition, high speed imaging now allows for time resolved measurements. As applications in this field expand the techniques expand. In addition, methods of mitigating error, automating calibration, scaling from micro to macro, and improving the overall measurement continue to advance. Please join us in Hawaii as we discuss these areas of research in the 3D volumetric imaging realm in a series of forums focusing on this area of research.
