A DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM FOR IN-FLIGHT AIRFOIL EVALUATION 760462

Details of the design and development of an airborne data acquisition system for in-flight evaluation of airfoils are presented. The system was designed to be flown aboard a single engine general aviation aircraft and to measure and record airfoil surface pressures, airfoil wake pressures, and aircraft angle of attack and airspeed. Included are descriptions of the instrumentation, calibration and data reduction techniques, illustrations of the raw data and comments on the operational experience gained during the flight evaluation of the GA(W)-2 airfoil.
