Diagnostic Methodologies and Advanced Measurement Techniques<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> Methodologies and Advanced Measurement TechniquesDiagnostic Methodologies and Advanced Measurement Techniques<p><span lang="EN-US">The laboratory task is to ensure the measurement capability already developed in previous years and the development of new methodologies to ensure to the center the excellence in the covered areas. To implement that, the laboratory is equipped with a number of small plants that allow the research and development of new measurement methods and preliminary research projects before exporting the results to larger systems or on experimental vehicles. Some of these plants are already present, such as, for experimental Aerothermodynamics, the wind tunnels CT-1 and CT-2, or for ice methodologies to the bench currently in maintenance tests. For other activities, it is expected to equip themselves with small and dedicated autonomous systems as a radiofrequency plasma generator and a burner respectively for the aerotermodinamiche and for combustion methodologies.</span></p><p>The laboratory, due to its expertise and heritage, is fully involved in experimental activities of the major CIRA test facilities (PWT, IWT, LISA) and in frame of the national program PRO.RA and HYPROB. The laboratory activities are mainly focused on test engineering and experimental measures. The laboratory is able to design, implement, qualify and integrate innovative and unconventional measurement systems for specific theoretical and experimental objectives as well as it is able to support specific diagnostic needs dedicated to the wind tunnel test articles and experimental flying vehicles and payloads. The laboratory is also able to carry out the mechanical characterization and microstructural analysis of materials and coatings used in the aeronautic and aerospace fields. </p><p>In addition to the experimental capabilities, the expertise and competences are also devoted to the numerical-experimental correlation in order to validate the results and/or the physical models and measure derived quantities.</p><p>The measurement methodologies and techniques currently under development can be addressed to the following main research area:</p><ul><li><p>  Experimental aerodynamic       <br></p></li><li><p>  Ice accretion, cloud characterization, two-phases flows<br></p></li><li><p>  Combustion<br></p></li><li><p>  Experimental aerothermodynamic<br></p></li><li><p>  Mechanical Characterization and Non-Destructive tests.<br></p></li><li><p>  Metrology<br></p></li></ul>
