  4. Implementation of Facility Models Using Neural Networks for Improved Control of Wind Tunnels

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF09BT16

    Test facilities such as wind tunnels require stringent control of test parameters such as wind speed, temperature, pressure, etc., in order to satisfy the objectives of the simulation. Control of test facilities can be significantly improved using mathematical models for the facility behavior that are developed from physical principles. A shortcoming of mathematical control models is that they t ...
