Abstract : This AGARDograph has been compiled by an international team of wind tunnel wall correction experts. The state of the art in wall corrections is presented with special emphasis given to the description of modem methods based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Topics covered include: (1) Open Test Sections, (2) Closed Test Sections, (3) Ventilated Test Sections, (4) Boundary Measurement Methods, (5) Transonic Wall Interference, (6) Bluff Body Corrections, (7) Adaptive Walls, and (8) Panel Methods CFD Methods.
