A research team led by Auburn Engineering professor Brian Thurow was awarded a $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a new, single-camera imaging system capable of capturing high-speed and 3-D measurements in practical flow fields.

“In one click of the shutter, can you get all of the information about what’s happening in three dimensions? The unique piece of what we’re developing is that we don’t have to have hundreds of cameras looking at an experiment at one time, and we don’t have to move the cameras around to a number of different positions,” Thurow said. “We can do it all in a simple, compact hardware, which will also allow the system to be optimized for various facilities and techniques.”

Thurow said the technology will allow them to expand their research beyond aerospace to other areas including biomedical engineering and cardiovascular fluid mechanics.
