Fluid Flow Analysis, Description and Control from Image Sequences

Team presentation

The FLUMINANCE research group is dedicated to the study of methods for the measurement, the analysis or the control of fluid flows from image sequences. The group aims at providing in the one hand image sequence methods devoted to the analysis and description of fluid flows and in the other hand physically consistent models and operational tools to extract meaningful features characterizing or describing the observed flow and enabling decisions or action. Such a twofold goal is of major interest for the inspection, the analysis and the monitoring of complex fluid flows, but also for control purpose of specific flows involved in industrial problems.

Research themes

The scientific objectives of the project decompose in three main themes: (i) characterization of fluid flow from image, (ii) coupling dynamical models and image data and (iii) control and optimization of turbulent flows. The analysis of geophysical flows in environmental sciences and flows involved in experimental fluid mechanics are the principal application domains of the group.
