Thermal Boundary Layer Visualization Using Telecentric Imaging

Figures show one frame of each video taken by the machine-vision camera for pure diffusion, natural convection, and forced convection.

Thermal Boundary Layer Simulation Using COMSOL

Figures represents one frame of COMSOL animation for each respective case. The dashed circle represents the actual diameter of the copper tube. Temperatures are in Kelvin.
