Tests were conducted in the 16-Ft Transonic Circuit of the Propulsion Wind Tunnel Facility to determine the Mach number calibration, Mach number distributions, operating limitations of the tunnel, and usable length of the test section after several modifications had been made to the tunnel. These modifications included changes in the test section bulge region, leading edge of the sting support strut, and tunnel scavenging scoop.
