The session is devoted to measurements of aerodynamic load and flow visualization by means of experimental flight tests and wind tunnels. The works that discuss the use of flight control systems in unmanned aerial vehicles and describe results of research and tests are also welcome.


Topics for this Special Session include:

  • Measurements of aerodynamic load and flow field
  • Flight control systems of unmanned aerial vehicles
  • Designing and measurements of unmanned aerial vehicles propulsion systems
  • Measurements and operating tests of unmanned aerial vehicles
