The 8th PSP/TSP course is planned to take place in Göttingen from February 18th to 22nd 2019. .
The aim of this course is to learn basics and new developments of the optical measurement techniques Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) and Temperature Sensitive Paint (TSP) within one week from lectures and in practical sessions, held by international experts.
The course language is English.
For investigations of pressure distributions on wind tunnel model surfaces with high spatial resolution, new experimental techniques such as Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) are required. Using this non-intrusive optical pressure measurement technique, spatial structures and/or rapid temporal or spatial changes of aerodynamic phenomena (transition from laminar to turbulent flow, shocks on pitching airfoils in transonic flows, coherent structures etc.) can be investigated. Recently an increasing number of scientists and engineers has started to utilise the PSP technique to investigate pressure distributions in transonic, low speed, hypersonic and cryogenic wind tunnels, as well as in turbo machines. The PSP technique has also evolved from the measurement of steady state pressures to include both periodic and unsteady phenomena to study the instantaneous structure of pressure fields in various areas of fluid mechanics.
This course, which is the eighth one on PSP organized by DLR Göttingen, Germany, will concentrate on both measurement techniques and aspects of the theory of PSP relevant to applications. In addition to lectures on the fundamental aspects of Pressure Sensitive Paint Systems, emphasis is placed on the presentation of practical and reliable solutions for problems faced during the implementation of the technique in wind tunnels and other test facilities. During practical sessions in the course, the participants will have the opportunity of carrying out experiments in small groups on PSP/TSP characterisation, coating technique, and the recording and evaluation of PSP/TSP data. Recent developments of the PSP/TSP technique will be discussed and demonstrated. In addition the application of Temperature Sensitive Paint (TSP), which is from the technical point of view very similar to PSP will be part of this course.
The participants are invited to prepare a poster to present their special interest in PSP or TSP which also can be helpful for discussions with experts about special technical aspects.
Course Outline (Preliminary)
Monday, February 18, 2019
This course is mainly intended for beginners as well as for engineers, scientists and students, who may have already some basic knowledge of the PSP or TSP technique or have just started to utilise it for their special industrial or scientific applications or plan to do so in near future.
Besides physical basics different methods are presented in detail. During the course the recording and evaluation of PSP/TSP data will be treated – in theory as well as in practice.
Preregistration is required due to limited number of places in the laboratory.
The registration fee of 990 € includes the right to participate the PSP Course 2019, course notes, lunches and refreshments during the course.
For payments received before January 17, 2019, a reduced registration fee of 890 € applies.
A cancelation fee of 200 € will be charged from registered persons who cancel their participation after January 17, 2019.
The fee for participation is free of VAT as far as the German Umsatzsteuergesetz (UStG) is concerned.
Registration is only possible at BESL, our external partner for participant registration incl. the invoicing and collection of participation fees.
