Analysis of the Mutual Inductance Particle Velocimeter (MIPV)
Abstract
Three analytical areas supporting development of the mutual inductance particle velocimeter (MIPV) are investigated. First, the basic theory is extended to permit calculation of gage factors and determination of design criteria for complex geometry gages. A finite element model is developed to investigate the effects of divergent/offaxis flow upon the gage response. Finally, an electromechanical mathematical model of the gage is developed to investigate the effects of shockinduced selfinductance and resistance charges upon gage response.
