Super-resolution is an innovative technique that upscales the resolution of an image or a video and thus enables us to reconstruct high-fidelity images from low-resolution data. This study performs super-resolution analysis on turbulent flow fields spatially and temporally using various state-of-the-art machine learning techniques like ESPCN, ESRGAN and TecoGAN to reconstruct high-resolution flow fields from low-resolution flow field data, especially keeping in mind the need for low resource

The dataset used for this study is extracted from the 'isotropic 1024 coarse' dataset which is a part of Johns Hopkins Turbulence Databases (JHTDB). We have utilized pre-trained models and fine tuned them to our needs, so as to minimize the computational resources and the time required for the implementation of the super-resolution models. The advantages presented by this method far exceed the expectations and the outcomes of regular single structure models. The results obtained through these models are then compared using MSE, PSNR, SAM, VIF and SCC metrics in order to evaluate the upscaled results, find the balance between computational power and output quality, and then identify the most accurate and efficient model for spatial and temporal super-resolution of turbulent flow fields.
