Paper Abstract

Three examples of different applications of laser techniques in experimental fluid mechanics are described including flow field around a proposed heart prostheses, flow field around a model motor vehicle, and flow visualization of the vortex shedding from a delta wing. Velocity measurements of flow around the heart valve prosthesis indicate that the new design is capable of delaying flow separation. Velocity measurements of flow around a model motor vehicle show that separation occurs above the bonnet and at the rear of the vehicle.
