Ultrasound Doppler Velocity Profiling (UVP) is a measuring technique based on a Doppler ultrasound echography, that measures velocity profiles of flowing liquids.
Depending on the equipment set-up it provides 1D, 2D and 3D velocity information, as a function of space and time.
UVP technique can be applied to both transparent and opaque liquid flows, for instance in research laboratories, industrial pilot plants, or in the field surveys, for structure design, flow analysis, rheology studies, process control.
Typically measured liquids are: water suspensions, waste water, processed food, liquid metals, mineral suspensions, paper pulp.
UVP users are found in a wide community of scientists worldwide working in various research fields.
They are often very keen on sharing their experiences, promoting UVP technique and challenging us to further develop our technology.
