Laboratory experience is an essential component of teaching Fluid Mechanics. The system is for educational use with the purpose of providing actual visualization and validation of various phenomena in fluid mechanics, and provides a link between the experimental measurements and the associated theory.
Fluid mechanics is a highly visual subject. The ePIV technology because of its simplicity of operation, portability, low cost and being highly visual, will allow schools to use and teach the state of the art technology to their students. It can be used to promote fluid mechanics and science in general even to non-science and non-engineering students.
