Varnish sensor

20 March, 2003

Despite the use of computer simulation, wind tunnel testing is still required to measure pressure changes and airflow speeds on the surfaces of new aircraft and automobile prototypes. Such testing is now done less with smoke visualisation and threads but more frequently with high-tech sensors which have the least influence on air flows. Film sensors made from piezoelectric materials provide one alternative. However, such films are difficult to apply - especially on rounded surfaces - and they do not adhere well under windy conditions. These disadvantages have been overcome with a varnish developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Plymer Research IAP.
