    The wide-accepted criteria for evaluation of the wind tunnel measurement quality are based on methodology of a few supposedly identical tests of the standard model. Wind tunnel data uncertainty is being considered in the form of test data repeatability. DAS Wind tunnel measurement quality in testing of a standard model Dijana Cited by: 1.   For low speed flows, tufts or surface oil indicate the flow direction along the surface of a model. You can investigate some wind tunnel testing techniques by using our interactive tunnel testing applet. More experienced users can use the TunnelSys application programs to perform model design, testing, and performance post-processing.

    A series of wind tunnel investigations were conducted at NASA Ames Research Center to de-termine the flow characteristics downstream of a set of wind tunnel inlet flow conditioning vanes. The purpose of these tests was to develop an un-derstanding of the flow mechanisms that con-tributed to the pressure loss and turbulence gen-erated by the File Size: 1MB.

For these tests, the forebody roughness of a blunt-based model was modified using micromachined surface overlays. As forebody roughness increases, boundary layer at the model aft thickens and reduces the shearing effect of external flow on the separated flow behind the base region, resulting in reduced base drag.

The wind-tunnel tests results conclusively demtmstrate the existence of a forebody drag-base drag t_plimal point. The data demonstrate that the base drag coefficient corresponding to the drag minimum lies betv, een andreferenced to the base area.

A WIND-TUNNEL INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECT OF BODY SHAPE ON SONIC-BOOM PRESSURE DISTRIBUTIONS By Harry W. Carlson, Robert J. Mack, and Ode11 A. Morris Langley Research Center SUMMARY Measurements of sonic-boom pressure distributions at distances of up to 20 body lengths from eight slender bodies of revolution have been made at Mach numbers of The turbulence drag reduction can be more obvious if using the flow control method of micro riblets on the fuselage surface of large passenger aircraft.

Combined with sub-transonic and supersonic wind tunnel equipment, in this paper, a set of experimental verification methods for micro riblets drag reduction of fuselage is developed.

Abstract. The intention of wind-tunnel experiments (or in general physical modelling, including water-tank experiments) is to reproduce the characteristics of the atmospheric boundary layer on a small geometric scale, typically between 1/ th and 1/ th of the real world.
