This paper presents and discusses the recent developments on the Fast-Response Aerodynamic Pressure Probe (FRAPP) technology at the Laboratorio di Fluidodinamica delle Macchine (LFM) of the Politecnico di Milano. First, the different geometries developed and tested at LFM are presented and critically discussed: the paper refers to single-sensor or two-sensor probes applied as virtual 2D or 3D probes for phase-resolved measurements. The static calibration of the sensors inserted inside the head of the probes is discussed, also taking into account for the temperature field of application: in this context, a novel calibration procedure is discussed and the new manufacturing process is presented. The dynamic calibration is reconsidered in view of the 15-years' experience, including the extension to probes operating at different temperature and pressure levels with respect to calibration. As for the probe aerodynamics, the calibration coefficients are discussed and the most reliable set here is evidenced. A novel procedure for the quantification of the measurement uncertainty, recently developed and based on the Montecarlo methodology, is introduced and discussed in the paper.

Abstract

This paper presents and discusses the recent developments on the Fast-Response Aerodynamic Pressure Probe (FRAPP) technology at the Laboratorio di Fluidodinamica delle Macchine (LFM) of the Politecnico di Milano. First, the different geometries developed and tested at LFM are presented and critically discussed: the paper refers to single-sensor or two-sensor probes applied as virtual 2D or 3D probes for phase-resolved measurements. The static calibration of the sensors inserted inside the head of the probes is discussed, also taking into account for the temperature field of application: in this context, a novel calibration procedure is discussed and the new manufacturing process is presented. The dynamic calibration is reconsidered in view of the 15-years' experience, including the extension to probes operating at different temperature and pressure levels with respect to calibration. As for the probe aerodynamics, the calibration coefficients are discussed and the most reliable set here is evidenced. A novel procedure for the quantification of the measurement uncertainty, recently developed and based on the Montecarlo methodology, is introduced and discussed in the paper.
