Abstract : Computers and data acquisition equipment were purchased to enhance the data processing capabilities at the IIT/Fluid Dynamics Research Center (FDRC). The equipment upgraded the center from Masscomp-based systems to Silicon Graphics/CAMAC Crate Modular System. This gives the EDRC substantially more computer processing power, and flexibility to reconfigure the data acquisition systems to fit each particular experiment. The AFOSR grant was used to purchase a central server computer, 5 peripheral workstations, 4 portable data acquisition crates and an auxiliary disk. The equipment purchased has a direct impact on seven ongoing research projects sponsored by AFOSR, ONR, NASA, and NSF.
