dc.description.abstractThis paper presents recent progress in the development of a novel multi-degree-of-freedom dynamic manoeuvre rig aimed at investigation of aircraft model nonlinear and time dependent aerodynamics in the wind tunnel. The purpose and characteristics of the rig are first described, along with a description of the data acquisition, processing and presentation system. The dynamic manoeuvre rig capabilities are demonstrated via a series of experiments involving a wind tunnel model aircraft in a closed section low-speed wind tunnel. First, an experiment illustrating low-speed wind tunnel aerodynamic model identification is presented. Then, examples of experiments involving real-time control of the rig/aircraft model are shown; these are evaluated in terms of testing productivity with a focus on the development and design of aircraft control laws.en
