Abstract

Student researchers at ÉTS designed an aerodynamic balance to automatically rotate parts of their reduced scale models at precise angles inside a wind tunnel in order to calculate lift, drag and moment coefficients. This aerodynamic balance was installed in the subsonic Price-Païdoussis wind tunnel of the Montreal Aeronautical Research Laboratory in Active Control, Avionics and Aeroservoelasticity (LARCASE), at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). The balance significantly reduces the duration of wind-tunnel testing of model reduced scale rotating parts.
