For many studies, knowledge of continuous evolution of hydrodynamic characteristics is useful but generally measurement techniques provide only discrete information. In the case of complex flows, usual numerical interpolating methods appear to be not adapted, as for the free decaying swirling flow presented in this study. The three-dimensional motion involved induces a spatial dependent velocity-field. Thus, the interpolating method has to be three-dimensional and to take into account possible flow nonlinearity, making common methods unsuitable. A different interpolation method is thus proposed, based on a neural network algorithm with Radial Basis Functions.
