Introduction to Ground Testing Facilities
Date: Monday 04 November 2019 to Wednesday 06 November 2019
Location : von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Sint-Genesius-Rode (near Brussels), Belgium
Ground testing facilities have been used since long in aeronautics and aerospace, as they have been developed for environmental and industrial applications. Nowadays they are still major sources of key data for investigations in all fields of fluid dynamics.
This course is organized for student and engineers to provide a general understanding of the design, operation and application of ground testing facilities from all speed regimes. Experimental methodology is exposed as well as the interpretation of the data and their extrapolation to real situation. The course includes an on-site presentation of the VKI facilities during a lab visit.
This Lecture series is based on the long tradition and experience developed at VKI on experimental testing.
