Abstract

The two-dimensional velocity vector using a pulsed ultrasound field can be determined with the invention. The method uses a focused ultrasound field along the velocity direction for probing the moving medium under investigation. Several pulses are emitted and the focused received fields along the velocity direction are cross-correlated. The time shift between received signals is found from the peak in the cross-correlation function and the velocity is thereby determined.
