CWG (cross wind generator) , 100% studied , realized and tested by RIDE CAD
The CWG simulates side wind conditions for jet engine during certification testing. The CWG produces operating conditions in terms of wind speed and direction. It provides positional flexibility and generates an accurate velocity of air across the engine.
Main challenges were :
aerodynamic performance and extreme accuracy
accuracy of positioning
non stop fault tolerant system
measurement , monitoring and control real time system and algorithms
therefore a very accurate aerodynamic modeling and calculations
For reception of good result the set of natural experiments has been made. It was provided in cooperation with the Central Aerodynamic Institute.
Also the set of calculations in CFD programs was executed.
Result of complex CFD analysis and natural experiments was CWG with even flow profile and compact dimensions of CWG.
For CWG was created a specially transport system: 24 weel frame with electronic control moved by MAZ-537 prime mover.
