Abstract:

System design outlines are presented for measurement of aerodynamic parameters in a wind tunnel. Pressure measurements are obtained by an electromanometer system with readout for twelve sensing stations. Velocity is determined by pitot tube and hot wire devices. Models may be mounted in three modes on a sting and sector system for experimental runs. Vibration sensors and dynamic response simulation are available. Temperature gradients are determined by a nine-element thermocouple array. Provisions are made for a digital data acquisition system and visual analog display. Author
