INSIGHT INTO AIRCRAFT AEROACOUSTICS THROUGH EFFICIENT WIND TUNNEL TESTING

Archived

When designing a new aircraft shape, predicting aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance early in the process is critical. Computational fluid dynamics (CDF) and other computing solutions can help solve this challenge. However, in order to verify the predictions of individual aircraft components and the overall shape, wind tunnel testing is essential. Testing the aircraft’s shape with a scaled-down model can gain valuable engineering insights before the aircraft actually takes off.

But there is a flaw that cannot be ignored in wind tunnel testing, which is its high cost. To this end, engineers must obtain as much information as possible from each test. This webinar will showcase the latest technology in this field and show you how to make aerodynamic and aeroacoustic measurements in a wind tunnel in the most efficient way.
