IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Image processing for bubble image velocimetry in self-aerated flows
In this study, different preprocessing techniques have been applied in order to test if the accuracy of Bubble Image
Velocimetry (BIV) calculations in self-aerated flows can be improved. For this purpose, high-speed movies with a
resolution of 1920 × 1200 px and a frame rate of 730 Hz are captured on a stepped spillway model with a Phantom M120
camera supplied by LaVision. BIV results are obtained by application of the open-source Matlab® toolbox PIVlab and
compared to intrusive data from a double-tip conductivity probe. Averaging velocity fields from 249 frame pairs help to
obtain robust results. Therefore, BIV is carried out in a loop with preceding variation of image processing techniques.
Results show some potential improvement for the same cross correlation algorithm and post-processing options.
However, BIV results tend to underestimate flow velocities when compared to the conductivity probe data.
