Paper Abstract

A method of measuring the acceleration of unsteady fluid flows using standard L.D.A. Optics has been developed. This is expected to have applications in many areas. It is demonstrated to be reliable in flow fields of breaking wave crests where no other method of fluid velocity or acceleration measurement is applicable. Comparison is provided with other methods of flow measurement and with numerical predictions of the fluid velocity and acceleration fields under a breaking crest.
