Aerospace Testing Facilities available in India

  Title of the Aerospace Test
High Speed Base Flow Wind Tunnel
  Name of the Organisation
  Name of theLab
National Aerospace Laboratories - NAL
  Place of the Lab
  Category of Aerospace Test Wind Tunnel Testing
  Sub-category of Aerospace Test NA
  Year of Establisment 1991
  Test Applications
Steady and Unsteady force & moment measurements
Steady and Unsteady pressure measurements
Flow visualization - Surface oil flow, Schlieren
Flow diagnostic tests Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Background Oriented Schlieren (BOS)
  Test Special Features
Fairly well developed zero pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer characteristics on the after body. 
Typical test duration(40s)
Stagnation pressure (10 to 150psi)
Jet total pressure(0-150psi)
  Other Test Information
Pressure measurements : ESP pressure scanners, pressure, Transducers
Force & Moment measurement : Strain gauge balances
The models are supported directly on the nozzle inner body, and therefore the support system interference is completely eliminated, metric and non- metric after concept for force measurement using strain gauge balance.
