Model positioning & traverse systems
Measured object (usually a scale model) in the Wind Tunnel test section must be attached to a device which allows to set its position in different planes to the requested position against the airflow. This device must be stiff and adjust the position within appropriate accuracy and speed. On the other hand should not disturb the flow in the test section in order to minimize it s influence on measured data. Computer controlling and reading of actual angle has to be done. WTtech.CZ offers following basic types of these mechanisms:
Model positioning systems – Devices for model positioning at the Wind Tunnel test section – changing of
model Angle of Attack, Angle of Roll and Yaw angle.
Turn tables - Devices for model and balance positioning in the Wind Tunnel test section (changing of Angle of Yaw).
Traverse systems – Devices for probes traversing in test section of Wind Tunnels.
