ABSTRACT

This special session aims to present the most recent measurement techniques in the field of Thermo-Fluid Dynamics, which plays a fundamental role in aerospace.
In fact, in space and atmosphere flight, several situations of great interest related to this topic arise. In particular the atmospheric re-entry has always represented a crucial phase of a space mission.
For the very high temperatures involved, the study of the re-entry Fluid Dynamic is fundamental to evaluate the behavior of the structures of the Spacecrafts.
The ice formation is one of the main problems for the aircrafts flying through clouds, on all the exposed surfaces. In fact it often affects negatively the airplanes flights.
Moreover, the Fluid Dynamics plays an important role also in the world of space propulsion, especially for combustion chambers and cooling systems.
All these situations regard particular conditions, and the importance to perform significant experimental test in representative environments leads to the necessity of specific on-ground facilities.
In these laboratories, several instrumentations are used as Pirometers, Thermocameras, Gardon Gauges, Strain Gauges, Pressure sensors and more.
In order to respond to the requirements of aerospace standards, all these techniques require careful analysis from a metrological point of view and it is also necessary to have high accuracy calibration systems. This kind of optimization by means of these two aspects allows scientist to increase the quality of the measurements performed.

  • New methods for design and measurements aimed at propulsion systems;


ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

Adolfo Martucci received the degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Naples “Federico II” in 2004, and the Ph.D. in Space Fluid Dynamics at the same university in 2007. For two years he has worked as researcher in the field of computational aero-thermodynamic, with particular attention to the conditions of the Plasma Wind Tunnel SCIROCCO. In 2006 he joined CIRA, the Italian Aerospace Research Center, to work on the aero-thermodynamic process of the Plasma Wind Tunnel hypersonic facilities, and then he joined the PWT Test Engineering Group. In the last years he gained experience in Plasma Wind Tunnels test campaign preparation, execution, data processing and reporting. He has been involved in concept and design of Facility upgrades. In 2018 he joined the CIRA Metrology Group to work on the research of new and innovative methodologies for the sensors calibrations, in particular devoted to measurements related to the Fluid Dynamic and the Aerospace sector.


Giovanni Cerasuolo is graduated with honors in Information Technology Engineering at Università degli Studi della Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli” in 2011. He worked for three years as R&D engineer in the home automation field, developing smart energy solutions studying sensor measurement techniques. In 2014 he joined CIRA, the Italian Aerospace Research Center, to work as researcher in metrology department. He is interested in pressure, temperature, acceleration and electrical sensors at CIRA test facilities studying innovative solutions and measurement techniques. He is also enriching his scientific expertise as a Ph.D. student on methods, models and technologies for Engineering at Università degli Studi di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, developing methods and tools for the calibration of speed measurement systems based on GNSS technology.


Orsola Petrella Degree and Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering. Since 2003 she has been working in CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Center). She is the head of Metrology Laboratory where innovative meausurement systems are studied for electrical, pressure, acceleration and thermal quantities. She has a wide experience about design and realization of dedicate calibration set-up for aerospace measurements. In the recent time she is dealing with calibration systems for Thermo-Fluid Dynamics sensors.
