PIVlab 1.1 released

PIVlab v 1.1, added features / improvements:

  • better smoothing algorithm (smoothn.m) if supported (otherwise gaussian kernel is used)
  • removed several known bugs/ pitfalls
  • added a feature to extract tangential velocity along a series of circles with increasing radius (useful to calculate vortex circulation)
  • added a feature to extract circulation via integrating the vorticity over area for a series of an increasing area
  • added a feature to calculate the weighted centroid of derived parameters
  • improvements in the particle image generation algorithm
  • added several flow simulations (including Hamel-Oseen vortices and vortex pairs)
  • vector width is user selectable
