Advanced Optical Instrumentation for the NASA Glenn Research Center's Aeronautical Test FacilitiesThe development of optical non-intrusive measurement techniques that can make global surface measurements in aero flow fields with increased temporal and spatial resolution is of major interest to the aeronautical research community. The ability to globally measure quantities such as velocity, temperature, density and pressure can provide better insight into the complex flow characteristics associated with the aero vehicle and aero propulsion concepts being investigated by NASA. In addition, these measurements are needed to validate Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) codes that are being developed to model aero phenomena and predict system performance. This presentation will give an overview of the advanced optical techniques that are being developed at the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) for the measurement of flow field and surface parameters in the GRC aeronautical test facilities.
