The present study deals with the torque converter (T/C) internal flow which is used for automatic transmission car. The T/C internal flows are visualized by the particle tracer technique. The technique, called the binary image cross-correlation method is applied to measure the flow velocity distributions. Since the velocity vectors are computed discretely at the particle positions in the PIV, some rearrangement methods are needed to get the velocity vectors at any point in order to extract the other physical informations. In this study, three new methods for velocity vector rearrangement using the equation of continuity, boundary element method (BEM in abbreviation), and the least square method are applied to the PIV results of T/C internal flow, and the performance of the new methods are examined.
