3D Measurements by PIV
  • PIV is 2D measurement
    • 2 velocity components: out-of-plane velocity is lost;
    • 2D plane: unable to get velocity in a 3D volume.
  • Extending PIV to 3D?

Dimension of velocity field

Dimension of observation volume


Stereoscopic PIV



Recover out-of-plane velocity

Dual plane PIV

3D Scanning PIV


Time delayed measurement


Seldom used due to low resolution

Holographic PIV

Drum scanner

  • Scanning a volume to get the depth information
  • Multiple frames recording and high-speed scanner are required
  • Time lag between frames: quasi-3D measurement

Scanning volume


3d particle tracking velocimetry ptv
3D Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV)
  • Extracting 2D particle locations from images captured from different views;
  • Reconstructing 3D particle locations according to the parameters of cameras and calibration information;
  • Tracking 3D particles in the volume to get the velocity
  • Extremely low resolution (hundreds of velocity map in one volume): cannot overlap
fundamentals of stereo vision
Fundamentals of stereo vision

True 3D displacement (DX,DY,DZ) is estimated from a pair of 2D dis- placements (Dx,Dy) as seen from left and right camera respectively

types of stereo recording geometry




Types of Stereo recording geometry

Angular arrangement:

Different parts of the plane cannot be all in focus

Parallel arrangement:

Share only partial field of view

The proper stereo recording geometry

Properly focusing the entire field of view with an off-axis camera requires tilting of the camera back-plane to meet the Scheimpflug condition

— The image, lens and object planes must cross each other along a common line in space

Mapping from 2D image back to 3D

3D evaluation requires a numerical model, describing how objects in 3D space are mapped onto the 2D image plane of each of the cameras

- The pinhole camera model is based on geometrical optics, and leads to the so-called direct linear transformation (DLT)

- With the DLT model, coefficients of the A-matrix can in principle be calculated from known angles, distances and so on for each camera.

- In practice not very accurate, since, as any experimentalist will know, once you are in the laboratory you cannot set up the experiment exactly as planned, and it is very difficult if not impossible to measure the relevant angles and distances with sufficient accuracy.

Hence, parameters for the numerical model are determined through camera calibration

camera calibration
Camera calibration

Images of a calibration target are recorded.

The target contains calibration markers (dots), true (x,y,z) positions are known.

Comparing known marker positions with corresponding marker positions on each camera image, model parameters are adjusted to give the best possible fit.

overlapping fields of view
Overlapping fields of view

3D evaluation is possible only within the area covered by both cameras.

Due to perspective distortion each camera covers a trapezoidal region of the light sheet.

Careful alignment is required to maximize the overlap area.

Interrogation grid is chosen to match the spatial resolution.

left right 2d vector maps
Left / Right 2D vector maps

Left & Right camera images are recorded simultaneously.

Conventional PIV processing produce 2D vector maps representing the flow field as seen from left & right.

Using the camera model including parameters from the calibration, the points in the chosen interrogation grid are now mapped from the light sheet plane onto the left and right image plane (CCD-chip) respectively.

The vector maps are re-sampled in points corresponding to the interrogation grid.

Combining left / right results, 3D velocities are estimated.
