Abstract : This paper is an introduction to the problem of defining and selecting an automated data processing system for a wind tunnel facility. The restraints imposed by speed and accuracy requirements, and the characteristics of various facilities and types of testing are discussed. Typical systems and system elements are described. A tabulation listing the present data processing systems for many wind tunnel installations and a sample specification for a modern system are included.
