Abstract:

The design, construction and proof tests of a magnetic model suspension system capable of use in a M 4.8 wind tunnel is described. The results indicate that the model can be suspended magnetically during the wind tunnel starting conditions, that the model can be angulated and lift and drag forces measured with the model at angle of attack.
