All dataset is stored in .xls format. The excel worksheet has velocity magnitude data and the corresponding X/Y/Z coordinates for each 2D plane. The X/Y/Z coordinates should match with the CAD and CFD geometry coordinates. The PIV data is posted in the table below for the following six flow conditions

Condition 1:  2.5 lpm and 2500 rpm              Condition 2:  2.5 lpm and 3500 rpm       

Condition 3:   4.5 lpm and 3500 rpm             Condition 4:  6.0 lpm and 2500 rpm

Condition 5:   6.0 lpm and 3500 rpm             Condition 6:  7.0 lpm and 3500 rpm
