This project concerns the design of a three components internal aerodynamic load cell. This load cell will be used to measure the lift, drag and pitching moment in static or oscillating airfoils enduring air loads. The end objective is to study the complex unsteady 3 dimensional (3D) air flows interaction with airfoils. This interaction is often characterized by flow recirculation and massive flow separations that lead to reduction of both aerodynamic performance and structure fatigue.

The Computer-aided design (CAD) of the internal load cell will be presented. Finite element analysis (FEA), through ANSYS software, is used to assess the design before its construction. The result shows the good response of the balance to simulated air loads.
