[en] This work presents, compares and discusses results obtained with two indirect methods for the cal
culation of aerodynamic forces and pitching moment from 2D Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements. Both methodologies are based on formulations of the momentum balance: the integral Navier-Stokes equations and the “flux equation” proposed by Noca et al. (1999), which has been extended to the computation of moments. The indirect methods are applied to spatio-temporal data for different separated flows around a plate with a 16:1 chord-to-thickness ratio. Experimental data are obtained in a water channel for both a plate undergoing a large amplitude imposed pitching motion and a static plate at high angle of attack. In addition to PIV data, direct measurements of aerodynamic loads are carried out to assess the quality of the indirect calculations. It is found that indirect methods are able to compute the mean and the temporal evolution of the loads for two-dimensional flows with a reasonable accuracy. Nonetheless, both methodologies are noise sensitive and, the parameters impacting the computation should thus be chosen carefully. It is also shown that results can be improved through
the use of Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) as a pre-processing step.
