This workshop is directed at researchers and engineers interested in applying modern optical measurement techniques for flight test. All are welcome to participate in the Advanced Flight Testing Workshop which will be held from the 9 to 14 September 2013, at Rzeszow University of Technology Aviation Training Centre, Rzeszów, Poland.
The aim of the workshop is to present the state-of-the-art knowledge on the application of modern optical measurement techniques to measure the thermal and flow parameters in-flight. Furthermore, advanced optical methods to measure the deformation of the surface of the wings and rotor blades of aircraft will be presented. Delegates will gain detailed knowledge and experience, as a result of research conducted in the framework of two European projects AIM and AIM² and verified during the flight test on various types of aircraft. These have included the Evektor VUT100, Airbus A380, Dornier 228, Fairchild Metro II, Janus, PW-6, Piaggio P180 and Scottish Aviation Bulldog. There will also be significant networking opportunities through contact with leading EU flight test researchers and engineers.
Lectures and practical exercises will be delivered by AIM2 personnel. Several aircraft including the PW-6 from Rzeszów University of Technology, will be used to demonstrate the flight test techniques.
