A computerized flow visualization technique capable of automatically quantifying the temperature field in a two-dimensional cross section of a flow field is described. The temperature sensors used are fast-response temperature-sensitive micro-encapsulated liquid crystal particles. Illuminating the flow by a thin sheet of white light, the reflected colors from the liquid-crystal particles were captured through a 3-chip video color camera and stored onto a videotape for subsequent data processing. The temperature flow field was obtained through an automatic color-temperature calibration scheme in HSI rather than RGB space, thus allowing for data processing of approximately one-third the time of RGB processing. The technique is finally applied to the study of a heated vortex-ring and some preliminary results are discussed.
