Numerical study of wind tunnel blockage effect for automotive applications

Wind tunnel testing of an aircraft model

Description: The work is part of the activities of the CICLoPE laboratory aimed at the study and development of measurement methods for turbulent flows. The purpose of the thesis is to develop a system that estimates the blocking present within the test section of a wind tunnel that studies the aerodynamics of vehicles

Requirements: It is necessary to have a good ability with tools such as: labVIEW, Matlab or other programming languages.

Learning objectives: Operation of the main measurement systems in the wind tunnel, ability to operate with an extremely sophisticated measurement system, using a numerical code

Activities: analysis on measurement effects for automotive wind tunnels

type / duration: Experimental master thesis  / 4-6 months full-time
