Spatial correlation from the SPIV database of the WALLTURB experiment
Paper in proceedings, 2011

An original experiment has been performed in the frame of the WALLTURB EC project. In this experiment a specific set-up of SPIV allows to compute the full 3D tensor of velocity spatial correlation by using the homogeneity of the flow. The two-point correlations are tools to study the coherence of a flow. Stanislas et al. (C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris 2b 327:55–61, 1999) and Kahler (Exp. Fluids 36:114–130, 2004) showed that double spatial correlations, computed from Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) fields, allow a better understanding of the turbulent flow organization.
