Audi wind-tunnel sensor arm

Designing a sensor arm that does not vibrate when holding it next to an Audi sports car driving at 250Km/h in the "Ingolstadt" windtunnel, was not an easy task. But with the appropriate composite designs, calculations and material(s), Solico has been able to deliver this project according to the expectations of the customer. 

High stiffness to weight ratio

The stiffness to weight ratio of a high modulus carbon fiber construction is typically 5 times higher than steel or aluminium.

Freedom of geometry

Double curved shapes are easily produced in composite materials at almost no extra cost. For production of limited series the relatively low moulding costs are an additional benefit.
