Paper Abstract

Optical tomography using interferometric data is applied in this study to investigate the flow and heat transfer phenomena a 3D differentially-heated cubic enclosure. The interferometric recording and reconstruction system, associated processing and reconstruction procedures, and results from this analysis are described. The experimental results are verified by comparison with independent temperature measurements. The comparisons indicate that the experimental technique can yield 3D perspectives of complex flows having sufficient spatial resolutions to verify detailed 3D direct numerical simulations.
