Studies of the refraction of the flat optical beam near the heated ball and cylinder

The principles of optical refractography - method for diagnostics of optically inhomogeneous media and flows of the liquid based on the refraction spatially structured optical radiation (SOR), digital registration refractive picture (refractogram) and its computerization with the aim of restoring the properties of the medium. Examples of visualization of thermal processes caused by free convection in liquids near heated objects.
