Consulting

Consulting

We provide consulting services to defence, biotech, semiconductor, health, energy, agricultural and environmental industries. Theory, flow visualization, detailed quantitative measurements using PIV/PTV and complete analysis. Contact Prof. Alex Liberzon for details.

Research

Research

We develop hardware and software for novel measurement techniques, focusing mainly on the small scale structure of turbulence. We design and develop miniature flow sensors based on fluid-structure interactions, three-dimensional particle tracking velocimetry with real-time image processing, and novel flexible structure viscometers.

Highlights

Scientific Reports paper is out in press. Congratulations to Ron Shnapp

Extended 3D-PTV for real-time Lagrangian flow measurements and particle tracking statistics

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-43555-2

And many thanks to Sabrina, Meny, Grisha and everyone who helped this project – it was a very difficult experiment and we succeeded. 

The paper should change the future of experimental turbulence research, at least so we believe.

 

Yes, we can!  Ron Shnapp

Moth inspired navigation strategy simulator

Noam Benelli has just released a new open source and open science project that could help scientists in movement and behavioral ecology, entomology, agriculture, and robotics to study navigation strategies in turbulent odor plumes. Thanks to another open source project, pompy, we could create a unified simulation framework and study our navigators and their performance under varying turbulent odor plume conditions. 

The Github of the project: https://github.com/alexliberzonlab/mothpy
