New Approach to Ventilation Measurements in Enclosure Fires

Abstract

The application of Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (SPIV) is a new approach to quantifying the ventilation in enclosure fires. Stereoscopic PIV is a non-intrusive optical measurement technique which measures the displacement of tracer particles in a flow. The technique is completely independent of temperature and differential pressure measurements typically applied to quantify ventilation in enclosure fires. Stereoscopic PIV is capable of performing thousands of measurements over large planar regions and resolving the flow velocity into its three components, (v
