BOS Measurements of Droplets and Airflow Using a Simulated Sneeze Generator

The Background Oriented Schlieren (BOS) method is a new fluid visualisation technique and is based on the principles of the traditional Schlieren method. While the Schlieren method is a qualitative measurement, the BOS method allows quantitative measurements to be made with simpler optical arrangements. This is analysis result of BOS analysis of droplets and airflow using a simulated sneeze generator.
