A Set-Up to Measure the Transferred Multi-Axial Impact Momentum of a Bird Strike on a Booster Vane
In this work, a multi-axial force measurement tool is developed to serve in a test campaign of bird strike experiments on booster vanes. The idea is to give some well-chosen mass three rotational degrees of freedom and acquire the transferred rotational momentum from an optical measurement, which is a direct measure for the impact force. The tool is validated experimentally and numerically using a simplified steel vane.
