  • Particle image velocimetry with local field correction (LFC PIV) has been tested in the past to obtain two components of velocity in a two dimensional domain (2D2C). When compared to conventional correlation based algorithms, this advanced technique has shown improvements in three important aspects: robustness, resolution and ability to cope with large displacements gradients. A further step in the development of PIV algorithms consists in the combination of LFC with the stereo technique, which is able to obtain three components of velocity in a plane (2D3C PIV). In this work this combination is implemented and its performance is evaluated ...
