GUst generators and model DesiGn for transonic wind tunnel tEsTs

Project description

Steady as she blows

A fully loaded Jumbo jet can weigh 400 tonnes, so keeping the plane flying safely is a tremendous feat, even more so during sudden gusts or turbulence. Wind tunnels and flight simulation are critical to aircraft design, development and testing. The EU-funded GUDGET project is developing a new gust generator to investigate the aeroelastic behaviour of aircraft during high amplitude gusts, and an advanced, heavily instrumented and equipped WT model with a motorised aileron enabling the testing of new gust load alleviation techniques. The system and the WT model will be installed at a world-class European transonic wind tunnel facility to aid in the creation of a database that will improve numerical models and their predictive accuracy.
