Dynamic pressure testing

One of a few test beds globally that is primary used for research/testing and characterization of dynamic pressure measurement systems.

The laboratory contains a so called shock tube, which is designed to generate extremely fast pressure pulses. The laboratory also includes a data acquisition system, analysis programs, additional sensors, signal converters and other secondary systems needed.

Characteristics:

  • Pulse rise time of about 5 ns
  • Filling pressure of maximum 1.6 MPa
  • Maximum sampling rate 100 MS/s/channel
  • Resolution 14 bits (100 MS/s) or 24 bits (208 kS/s)

There are possibilities to evaluate step response and static properties in order to determine the dynamic characteristics of the sensor or measurement system, including resonance frequency
