Chapter 4. The Transonic Wind Tunnel and the NACA Technical Culture. by Steven T. Corneliussen. When nuclear physics emerged as a compelling field of fundamental scientific inquiry during the s, it needed new research tools, especially the invention of accelerators for probing nuclei with artificially energized subatomic particles. 1 Similarly, when the United . The flowfield on a segmented multi-slotted wind tunnel wall has been studied at transonic speeds by measurements in and near the wall layer using five port cone probes. The slotted wall ftowfield was observed to be three-dimensional in nature for a relatively significant distance above the slot. The boundary layer characteristics measured on theFile Size: 2MB. studied in wind-tunnel tests and free-flight experiments. iit trmsonic speeds less information is available, one reason for this being the ;?rexence of tunnel interference effects at stream Mach numbers near unity, wnich distort the flow field around the model.   The Foot Transonic Tunnel (16’TT) contributions to the F Eagle program started in with tests on the Republic F proposal configuration and supplying a member (Bobby Berrier) to the F contract Source Evaluation Board. Multiple wind tunnel tests on the winning McDonnell Douglas configuration were conducted during to Center: Langley Research Center.

The Volvo Cars aerodynamic wind tunnel has had a vortical flow angularity pattern in the test section since its original commissioning in The vortical flow nature persisted after an upgrade in , when the fan was replaced and a moving ground system was introduced. It has been hypothesized that the cause for this flow angularity pattern was leakages around the Author: Emil Ljungskog, Simone Sebben, Alexander Broniewicz. wall pressure measurement systems that provide wall boundary measurements for the assessment of wind tunnel wall interference corrections. The systems were implemented in the Ames 12ft Pressure Wind Tunnel and the Ames 11ft Transonic Wind Tunnel. [16] Ulbrich, N. and Boone, A.

These tools included (1) the tunnel balance, which had been used by wind tunnel researchers for years as the standard means of measuring the aerodynamic forces on a model (i.e., lift, drag, and pitching moments); (2) orifices sensitive to pressures at various points on the surface of a model from whose measurements one could calculate local.
