Due to advances in digital image processing, computer and optical hardware, it is possible to extract full flow information from visualized flow images. Recently, the PIV/PTV methods have been accepted as a reliable velocity field measurement technique. In my laboratory, several velocity field measurement techniques have been developed and they were applied to various thermo-fluid flow problems. In this paper, some of the industrial applications will be discussed. As a result, the PIV/PTV technique was proved to be a powerful tool for industrial fluid flow diagnosis.
