Abstract:

A computer-controlled data acquisition and analysis system was designed, built, and tested. All of the required elements of a complete data acquisition system were assembled, including transducers, amplifiers, signal conditioners, display devices, computer interface, computer, and related software. A digital multiplexer was constructed to multiplex up to 16, 16-bit channels for input into the computer. A computer program was written to bring the various parts of the system together. An experiment, Analysis of an Airfoil by Pressure Distribution, was used as a vehicle to test the system. The final output of the data acquisition system, including graphical information, compared favorably with previous results from an older data acquisition system in use. Keywords Wind tunnels.
