The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation for measurements of flow, pressure, force and response.

  • Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) for measurement of flow fields and for flow visualization
  • Hot-wire anemometry with a traverse system
  • Research-grade smoke generator
  • Multi-channel electronic pressure scanners (up to 350 Hz sampling per channel)
  • Six-component base balance for force and moment measurements
  • Strain-gage conditioners and amplifiers
  • LabView software and National Instruments DAQ systems
