Paper Abstract

The application of an INSTAR high-speed video system for the study of complex water flows via flow visualization techniques is described. Three examples are presented which illustrate how the various characteristics of the videographic system, particularly the split-screen capability, have been utilized to view and examine the behavior of time-varying, three-dimensional flows. Several particularly significant adaptations of the system are discussed, including 1) the use of a fiber optic lens for on-line, underwater viewing of flow behavior and 2) interfacing of split-screen video pictures with a computer-aided display to recreate three-dimensional flow patterns.
