Abstract

Two simplified theories for the corrections to be applied to the measured pressure in order to determine the pressure distribution on a rotating body are presented. One is based on continuous sampling, and the other is based upon pulse sampling. The problems associated with and the design features of systems using different pressure sensing elements are reviewed. From these considerations, the system offering the simplest solution is selected. The design features and compromises of a model designed and constructed utilizing pulse sampling are discussed.
