dc.description.abstractIn the development of a surface pressure measurement system for transonic compressor rotors, it has been shown that Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) is also temperature dependent. In the present study, the sensitivities to pressure and temperature were examined experimentally using an electronically- gated, intensified Charged- Coupled-Device (CCD) video camera, frame-grabber software and an eight-inch diameter calibration chamber. Using a signal generator, in a procedure that matched the requirements of the rotor application, multiple low-intensity-level camera exposures were integrated and captured to produce a single usable image. Ten captured images were averaged to increase the image's signal-to-noise ratio and the result was used to produce an image ratio with respect to a static (ambient pressure/temperature) reference condition. Calibration tests of constant temperature/variable pressure and constant pressure/variable temperature were completed. The results were then compared with data obtained using the same paint and an automated, single- exposure calibration procedure at NASA Ames Research Center. It was shown that the calibration data could be used to derive the static pressure field produced over a high-speed test rotor using PSP and the same image-capture system used in the calibration. In preparation for a bench test of the procedure, a uniform- stress, high-speed test rotor disk, fitted with a shock generator was driven at speeds in excess of 30,000 RPM. Recommendations are made toward the goal of obtaining quantitative pressure measurements on transonic compressor rotorsen_US
