This work aims to foster collaboration among  research groups currently active on the topic of PIV uncertainty quantification. Our activities have led to a database that can be used as a reference to validate different algorithms for PIV uncertainty quantification.

The outcome of this work has been two scientific articles published in Measurement Science and Technology. Through this website, we want to make the database available to the public. The description of the database is reported in this document and, in more  detail, in Neal et al. (2015). The unique feature of the database is that we provide not only the raw images, but also the exact velocity field obtained with a more accurate high dynamic range (HDR) system.
