Wind tunnel pressure sensors for aerodynamic measurements

Wind tunnels allow aerodynamic engineers to make pressure and force measurements on aircraft or rocket models to improve aerodynamic performance.


Since many types of wind tunnels are designed for a specific purpose or speed range, PCB’s line of piezoresistive and piezoelectric pressure sensors, microphones, and force sensors for wind tunnels are organized by speed classification.


From subsonic use of condenser microphones for acoustic holography, to shock wave pressure sensors for studying boundary layer transition at high hypersonic Mach numbers, PCB manufactures a dynamic sensor for every aerospace testing application.


Wind tunnel sensors are used for:

  • Airplanes
  • Airfoil studies
  • Rockets
  • Buffeting
  • Re-entry vehicles
  • Engine noise
  • Dynamic Force balance
