Sample Measurement and Analysis

Equipment in this class carries out specific measurements and analysis techniques on samples and specimens. The differentiating characteristic of equipment in this class, compared to the Materials Characterization class, is that it is a complete or whole sample or specimen that is used.

The FlowMaster system family is designed to measure instantaneous 2D- and 3D velocity
fields using the well-established Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique. The different types are measurements on a plane/sheet (2D and Stereo-PIV) and in a volume (Tomo-PIV).While 2D-PIV measures both components on a plane, Stereo-PIV measures also the out-of-plane component on a plane. Tomo-PIV measures all three vector components in a volume. For all types the measurements can be performed at either low frame rate ("Low-Speed"-PIV) or at several kHz ("Time-Resolved"-PIV).

Leaf Area Index (LAI) is the ratio of foliage area to ground area. The LAI-2200 computes LAI from measurements made above the canopy and below the canopy, which are used to determine canopy light interception at 5 angles. These data are fit to a well-established model of radiative transfer inside vegetative canopies to compute leaf area index, mean tilt angle, and canopy gap fraction.

The benefits of the LAI-2200 over other methods such as ceptometry and hemispherical photography are that it:

Makes few assumptions about canopy structure.
