This is a rare occurrence indeed: the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE International) has adapted an article written by Abdallah Ben Mosbah, Manuel Flores Salinas, Ruxandra Botez, and Thien-My Dao for a general readership.

Abdallah Ben Mosbah is a Ph.D. student and Manuel Flores Salinas is a graduate student at the Research Laboratory in Active Controls, Avionics and Aeroservoelasticity (LARCASE) at ÉTS. They are supervised by Professor Ruxandra Botez and Professor Thien-My Dao.

The article, which was initially published in the Society of Automotive Engineering Review and presented at the 2013 SAE AeroTech Congress & Exhibition, deals with a new calibration method for the Price-Païdoussis wind tunnel at LARCASE.

The method uses a rapid algorithm to measure, in real time, the uniformity and laminarity of fluid flow inside the subsonic Price-Païdoussis wind tunnel. It can also be used to reduce the movement of the Pitot tube, a device that measures the speed of fluid flow in wind tunnels.

By showcasing the brilliance of our students and professors in aerospace on its web site – in an article titled “Technology Update: ETS researchers develop new methodology for wind tunnel calibration” – SAE International is publicizing the value of their work to a worldwide audience. This is one more step in raising international awareness of ÉTS’s outstanding capabilities and achievements.
