Abstract

Abstract The particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique was successfully applied for measuring the velocity of a He II thermal counterflow jet. Neutrally buoyant hydrogen–deuterium solid particles were used as tracer particles for PIV measurement. In the application, the normal component velocity was measured. The jet velocity profile and spatial decay of the jet velocity were compared with those of turbulent round jets of ordinary viscous fluids. The velocity measured near the jet nozzle exit was compared with the theoretical prediction for the normal component flow velocity.
