3D Printed piezo-resistive flow sensors for use on wings

MSc assignment

Airfoil over wings normally are in close-contact with the wing through a small boundary layer. However, under certain situations these airfoils can delaminate changing the fluid-dynamic interactions and controllability of the flying object significantly. In this research we want to investigate the possibility to integrate flow-delamination sensors with wing structures, reducing cost and assembly time while at the same time easily integrating the sensors without packaging constraints.
