Anodized aluminum pressure-sensitive paint has been used to measure the surface pressure distributions of wind tunnel models in a cryogenic wind tunnel. A thin, uniform anodized aluminum layer was directly coated onto the wind tunnel models by an electrochemical process. The resulting coating has an extremely high oxygen sensitivity for very low mole fractions of oxygen in the working gas (∼150 ppm). Numerous types of anodized aluminum PSPs were calibrated to optimize the sensitivity and the uniformity and to prevent the aging of anodized aluminum PSP. The luminophore deposition affected the sensitivity, and the phosphoric acid modification improved the uniformity and reduced the aging. To demonstrate this technology, a flat model and a 14% thick circular are bump model were tested in the 0.1 m Transonic Cryogenic Wind Tunnel at NAL. Surface pressure distributions on the models were clearly captured.
