An investigation of interstitial velocity field within a micro porous media is studied using a three component three dimensional (3C3D) μ-PIV system. The porous media is formed by packing of micro glass beads of size 400 μm inside a flow cell. The two component two dimensional (2C2D) velocity fields in micro pore region are obtained near the wall. 3C3D velocity field is obtained by scanning through 100 μm inside the porous media using the scanning μ-PIV system. Cross flow pattern and flow recirculation is observed within the micro pore region.
