NEXTFLOW aims to develop the next-generation flow diagnostics concept aimed to flow control. The project is funded by a Starting Grant of the European Research Council.
To achieve the objective of NEXTFLOW we will leverage the principles of completeness and compactness of the measurements. Completeness implies aiming to pursue a complete flow description, i.e. a time-resolved 3D characterization of velocity and thermodynamic variables. Compactness is pursued by exploring solutions with minimum technological complexity, and on developing new data output formats that are directly aimed at flow control applications.
