Abstract:

The design of an electromagnetic balance for suspending spherical models in a hypersonic wind tunnel is described. An orthogonal force system, together with compensated optical sensors in three stabilizing automatic feedback loops, provides inherently uncoupled control in three degrees of freedom. The major parts of the report contain the designs of the electromagnetic coil configuration and of the feedback loops. Author
