Paper Abstract

Methods of resolving directional ambiguity in PIV flow measurements are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the use of image shifting by mirror and laser pulse ''tagging''. Sample images obtained by these techniques are presented and the applicability and limitations of the image shifting approach are described.
