Abstract

Pratt and Whitney currently has a Dynamic Pressure Calibrator/Checker system that is incomplete and difficult to use. Our goal was to provide Pratt and Whitney with a flexible and user-friendly system that can accurately show the response of any pressure transducer. The original system was simplified, transducer mounting structures were designed and fabricated, and an improved method of analysis was discovered. Through experimentation and analysis, our group provided Pratt and Whitney with a modified system and recommendations for system operation.
