PTVlab Tutorial

A video tutorial is now available. It shows few basics steps to begin with PTVlab.
Check it in High Definition !



  1. Hi,

    Thanks for providing this code. I have a problem using it and wondering if you can guide me through. I find out that most of the time the detected particles are not located on the spatial grid which is defined in the code and as a result the code is not able to calculate particle velocities. Could you help me in this regard?

  2. Hi Nader, I would be happy to help, maybe you could send me a pair of images on my address.

  8. Hello Antoine P.

    Thank you for making a good platform for PTV. Unfortunately I couldn't use it properly. So it will be really great if you can look on my images and suggest something so that I can use this for my research as well.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best Regards,
    I.M. Zahidul
