  • A new wind tunnel testing technique has been developed which makes use of integrated local pressures, measured by a Synchronous Pressure Acquisition Network (SPAN), to determine overall wind-induced response. The integrated pressure modal load or IPML technique has the potential of addressing all of the limitations of the conventional high-frequency force-balance technique while still maintaining the same advantages that that technique has over the aeroelastic modelling. This paper outlines the approach and presents several experimental results including comparisons with data from matched high-frequency force-balance tests. © 1992.
