Analytical evaluation of techniques for use of a laser Doppler velocimeter to measure flow and turbulence

Abstract

Results of autocorrelation functions and power spectral densities of laser Doppler velocimeters in the reference-beam-heterodyning and the cross-beam-mixing mode are derived to handle turbulence measurements, Doppler ambiguity, spatial coherence, and effects of particle concentration and detection aperture. A useful definition of signal-to-noise ratio is given for both correlation and spectral analyses. The signal-to-noise calculation provides a direct comparison of the figures of merit between various arrangements of a laser Doppler velocimeter with methods for signal processing to measure optically the flow properties of a fluid under given experimental conditions.
