ATHENS CTU10: PC Based DAQ in Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics

Course starts: Monday, March 18 at 9:00AM
Meeting point: In front of the main entrance to the main building of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technická 4, Prague 6

Information for Participants

Research in Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics is highly supported by experimental measurements. This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the PC based DAQ of experimental measurements in Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics. Participants will learn how to plan, set up and run automatic measurements. The participants will use modern DAQ HW and SW, and will develop own codes to obtain, store and analyze measured data. In the practical part of this course, participants will be able to prepare small experimental measurements.

Schedule March 2024

Participants will be divided into 4 groups for laboratory sessions.

  • Task 1: Measurement and control of the mass flow rate in a channel
  • Task 2: Measurement of thermodynamic properties of moist air
  • Task 3: Measurement of air propeller characteristics in a wind tunnel
  • Task 4: Measurement of basic aerodynamic properties of a solid body in a steady airflow in a wind tunnel
