The measurement and control applications for wind tunnel testing typically include the wind speed measurement and control, pressure profile measurement and model balancing with respect to the wind in the tunnel. These measurement and control applications are difficult as well as time consuming hence needs to be automated. This paper presents the implementation aspects of a reliable and automated wind tunnel instrumentation system using LabVIEW and performance analysis using MATLAB. The automation is done by controlling the tunnel wind speed control, model balancing, auto switching of the wind tunnel at critical temperature.
