Aerospace Instrumentation, Volume 4 is a collection of papers presented at the Fourth International Aerospace Instrumentation Symposium, held at the College of Aeronautics, Cranfield. Co-sponsored by the Instrument Society of America, the symposium covers most aspects of aerospace instrumentation. This book is composed of 14 chapters and begins with a description of strain gauge transducers, an introduction to noise, filtering, and random function, as well as the data analysis facility designed to satisfy the needs in the fields of fundamental research and major power plant design and commissioning. A chapter examines equipment for the analysis of random processes for low frequence purposes. Other chapters explore the measurement and analysis of rotor blade airloads, the application of digital computer to instrumentation systems, the features of an altitude test facility, and the trade-offs existing between analogue and digital filtering techniques. The last chapters are devoted to test methods for aircraft performance, stability, and control characteristics determination in non-steady flight. These chapters also treat the operational experience of the B-70 flight test data system. This book will prove useful to aerospace scientists, engineers and research workers.
