The pressure- and temperature-sensitive paint (PSP/TSP) technique, for steady-state and unsteady-state measurements, is becoming widespread. However, unsteady quantitative measurement is still difficult because non-uniform distribution of the probes over a test model may cause errors in the results. We focus on the dipping method that applies two luminophores into a binding material to improve sensitivity uniformity over a model surface. A bullet-shaped axisymmetric test model with motion-capturing TSP was used to evaluate the sensitivity uniformity, and three dipping methods (static, convectional, and rotational) were examined. The average peak ratios in the longitudinal direction were 1.17–1.46 for static, 1.38–1.51 for convectional, and 1.42–1.45 for rotational dipping. The standard deviations in the transverse direction were the smallest for rotational (0.022–0.033), relative to static (0.086–0.104), and convectional (0.044–0.065) dipping. View Full-Text
