Dynamic Thrust Testing Tools

Research Theme: Energy
FURI: Fall 2019, Needs Editing

The goal of this project is creating tools to more effectively and economically measure dynamic thrust, a measure of how the propulsive forces of an aircraft change with airspeed. By better understanding this information, parameters that can influence the dynamic thrust, such as propeller twist and number of blades, engine type and sizing, etc. can be optimized. The end goal of this optimization is enabling faster, more efficient aircraft through better data.

Data Enabled Dynamic Thrust Measurement

Research Theme: Energy
FURI: Spring 2019

The objective of this project is to create an apparatus and associated testing standards in order to more effectively measure aircraft propulsion data. The data gathered is useful in choosing the most efficient thrust-generating configuration for use in small-scale aircraft such as drones. Future work will utilize these tools to test efficiency of different thrust-generating setups for said small-scale work.
