Abstract: A time-resolved particle image velocimetry (TR-PIV) system has been employed to investigate a laminar separation bubble which is induced by a strong adverse pressure gradient typical of ultrahigh-lift low-pressure turbine (LPT) blades. Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and dynamic mode decomposition (DMD) are described and applied within this paper. These techniques allow reducing the degrees-of-freedom of complex systems producing a low-order model ranked by the energy content (POD) or by the modal contri…
