Abstract: In applying a video-based particle image velocimetry (PTV) system in a complex fluid flow, it is common to find both regions of fast and slow moving flow intermixing-particularly in highly turbulent or reversing flows. When one attempts to track the movement of particles in such a flow with a wide velocity range (and hence, separation distance between particle images), resolution problems are encountered. Inability to cover a wide range of velocities is actually a limitation of PTV. A method is introduced here that extends the dynamic range of PTV when implemented on a video-based system. It combines the use of multiple frames and multiple exposures on a single frame. The method is subsequently verified by tracking dots painted on a spinning flat disc. © 1994 Springer-Verlag.
