Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. The wind tunnel itself is an instrument that involves the use of proper experimental techniques for best use. Wind tunnel testing without the use of proper experimental techniques can lead researchers and designers to draw inaccurate conclusions. Wind Tunnel Test Techniques: Design and Use of Low- and High-Speed Wind Tunnels provides an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of the subject matter. Beginning with a brief history of wind tunnels along with the types and uses, the book goes on to cover subsonic, supersonic and hypersonic wind tunnel design and construction; calibration; boundary corrections; flow quality assessment; pressure surveys; and dynamic testing. The book also focuses on wind tunnel facilities which is useful for the designer and operator. Engineers and graduate students in aerospace, automotive and similar programs will find this book useful in their work with experimental aerodynamics, gas dynamics, facility design and performance. Deals with all the range of flow speed in wind tunnels from low speed to high speed Provides a discussion of similarity laws as well as material on statistical analysis Includes coverage on facility-to-facility and facility-to-CFD correlation Presents advanced topics such as cryogenic wind tunnels, ground simulation in automotive testing, and propulsion testing
