This site has presented an overview of pressure sensitive paint and its application as an experimental measurement
method. The fundamentals of PSP, along with its implementation were discussed, along with its problems and
disadvantages. Some sample results were presented, demonstrating the usefulness of the PSP method as a flow
visualization and pressure measurement tool. So far PSP has proven itself to be a useful tool in aerodynamic
testing, and further research can only improve its capabilities and accuracy.
