The main activities of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) sites Göttingen and Braunschweig are aviation and traffic engineering. DLR Göttingen employs more than 400 experts in the foundation- and application-oriented field of aviation research.
There are no events for the selected time-range.
Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), in collaboration with Airbus, have completed a successful world première – for the first time, they have used lasers to visualise the airflow over the wing of a passenger aircraft in flight. They have developed a method that captures the movement of water droplets streaming over the wing, which reveals the smallest movements of the air. These findings will help optimise future wings to enable slower and quieter approach procedures. Another 'laser flight' is scheduled for 8 January 2015.
