Abstract : The design of the new all-metal test section of the Wright Field 10-Foot Wind Tunnel is discussed with reference to the basic objectives and the actual construction characteristics. The development of this test section during the calibration period for the 'slots-closed' configuration is described and the interim as well as the final calibration results on Mach number distribution, flow inclination, power requirements, etc. are presented. As secondary results, some information is presented on the influence of various artificial wall disturbances on the Mach number distribution in the supersonic operation range.
