Addressing frequency response effects in automotive aerodynamic pressure measurements

Because the aerodynamic point of interest, and point of measurement, is connected via a tube to the pressure sensor, or scanner, there can be detrimental effects in the measurement. These are often categorised under the broad term of Frequency Response Effects.It’s usually unavoidable, as it’s very difficult, because of the physical size of the scanner, to locate it exactly where you want to measure. For example, an aerodynamic surface may be many metres from the nearest place you can locate...
