Methods to determine the pressure field of vortical flow from three-dimensional (3D) volumetric velocity measurements (e.g., from a TSI V3VTM system) are discussed. The boundary pressure was determined where necessary using the unsteady Bernoulli equation for both line integration and pressure Poisson equation methods. Error analysis using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data was conducted to investigate the effects of spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and velocity error levels. The line integration method was more sensitive to temporal resolution, while the pressure Poisson equation method was more sensitive to boundary flow conditions. The latter was generally more suitable for V3VTM velocity measurements.
