Abstract:
This paper describes a system for measuring unsteady pressure at up to 256 spatial points and at frequencies up to 300 Hz. The system consists of commercially available equipment for measuring steady pressures. It is based on the use of electronically scanned pressure (ESP) sensors, 16 A/D converters, and a personal computer to control the whole system and acquire data. The signal outputs through the tubes connecting the pressure taps and the ESP sensors are compensated, as are the phase delays between the scanned signals and the gain variation. A 1/5 scale model of a sedan was used in this experiment. The passenger car model was placed in a wind tunnel equipped with a moving belt, which was operated at the same speed as the uniform flow in the wind tunnel. Pressure measurements were obtained at 252 points in a plane behind the model perpendicular to the uniform flow. Measurements were made with the belt turned on and off.
