This report presents a discussion of methods of producing rolling moments by magnetic fields on a model suspended in a magnetic wind tunnel balance system. Two methods are described and compared one involving the interaction of steady nonuniform fields with a nonuniformly magnetized body, and the other involving the interaction of an alternating uniform magnetic field with a closed loop of conducting material. The two alternative methods are translated into magnet configurations designed to satisfy the objective of a completely integrated six degree of freedom balance system. Author
