Fluid flow measurements around full-scale automobiles present unique problems and frequently include regions of reversed flow. Aeroprobe’s Omniprobe is frequently employed to measure angles up to 150 degrees. The Omniprobe, as well as Aeroprobe’s other Multi-hole probes, are used in measurement applications such as wake characterization, measuring under-carriage airflow, and swirling flow measurements around rotating wheels, among others. These tests help designers and engineers improve vehicle efficiency and safety.
Rakes offer an opportunity to map fluid dynamics across the width of a vehicle simultaneously, generating significant savings in tunnel testing time.
