Paper Abstract

A method is described to measure the total velocity field and the complete Reynolds stress tensor using a two component LDV system. The method is applied in a turbulent pipe flow. To reduce the beam refraction to a negligible amount, pipe sections made of transparent film of 80 micrometers thickness are used. It proved necessary to calibrate the frequency trackers in order to obtain an acceptable accuracy. Results are given for fully developed pipe flow and a flow containing a strong swirl.
