Lecture and Exercise: Dr. Rainer Hain



Experimental investigations play a central role in fluid mechanics design tasks. Be it on a miniaturized model in a wind tunnel or on the large version. The diagnostic tools available for this have developed just as rapidly as the electronics of fast signal processing and especially laser optics.
The module "Measurement Methods in Fluid Mechanics" deals with the most important mechanical, electrical and optical measurement methods used today in research and development.
