Measurement equipment facts

  • Pressure scanners with 384 sensors
  • Lift measurements using pressure measurements on airfoil, the wind tunnel walls and/or force gauges on shafts
  • Drag measurements using a wake rake (for small drag values) or pressure measurements on airfoil or force gauges on shafts (for bigger drag values) 
  • Noise measurements using an array of 84 microphones to focus on noise sources
  • Turntable with precise positioning of angle of attack
  • Miscellaneous sensors
