A New World of Real-Time Flow Visualisation
An innovative digital approach that combines the simplicity and speed of a smoke probe with the quality of a 3D-measurement scan has launched in the UK.
ProCap from Swiss manufacturer streamwise, provides real-time visualisation of a 3D velocity vector and its interpolation to a complete flow field, providing instantaneous understanding of the quality of aerodynamic measurements.
Simply by guiding the probe in the flow region of interest. The probe’s instantaneous position is precisely tracked with a camera system, the measured data is interpolated and the flow field is instantaneously visualised to the user. This is essentially an intuitive scan-and-paint approach of the flow in real-time.
The ProCap system drives the user towards area of interest and naturally improves the quality of measurement, saving costly and precious measurement time in the wind tunnel.
This exciting system includes a calibrated digital multi-hole probe with markers, tracking camera and software, and a laptop with ProCap software pre-installed. Alongside the system, a service & support package is available from UK channel partner, Evolution Measurement.
Evolution Measurement will manage UK and Northern Europe customer enquiries for the ProCap product range which includes ProCap Compact and Professional.
Andrin Landolt, Partner at streamwise said, “We are incredibly excited at this new venture. The team at Evolution Measurement are wholly solution focused and our products complements their existing range of aerodynamic measurement solutions.”
Evolution Measurement’s Managing Director, Paul Crowhurst said, “We are thrilled to bring ProCap to our customers as it will add enormous value for our existing aerodynamic measurement solutions customers.
The ProCap merges data streams from position tracking and flow field measurements, reduces data, interpolates and predicts the flow field for integrated validation, essentially helping aerodynamicists to maximise their time in the wind tunnel. Combining the ProCap system with our pressure scanners and custom flow probe range, we are able to provide a fully customisable aerodynamic solution which complements our wide and world-class range of fluid dynamic instruments and systems.”
