WEBINAR: Force Measurement at the Bleeding Edge of WindTunnel Testing for Advanced Aerospace Applications

Author: Silverstone Technology Cluster
Published On: 6 June 2023

Wednesday 5 July 2023 1pm

As the global heating crisis accelerates, the next
generation of passenger aircraft will demand a
substantial improvement in engine efficiency. The
advent of ultra-high bypass ratios will introduce new
aerodynamic challenges which are likely to require
changes in nozzle geometry between each flight
stage.


In close collaboration with Rolls-Royce, ARA has
developed a dual stream jet propulsion rig for test
and evaluation of variable geometry engine nozzles.
This unique, world leading capability has been made
possible by creating a bespoke force measurement
balance which delivers reliable, highly accurate
engineering data while cold, high pressure jets pass
through it.


With a focus on the critical stages in the life of the
balance, we will introduce the thermal modal analysis
which informed design, the planning and installation
of strain gauges and wiring following machining of
the balance, and the performance monitoring during
testing which ensured confidence in the engineering data.
