Abstract:

Results are presented of an investigation of the effect of Reynolds number on velocity surveys conducted in a subsonic wind tunnel. A series of velocity surveys was conducted over a wide range of wind velocities. The surveys were made behind two configurations--an axisymmetrical body with appendages and a three-cycle wake screen. The shape of the velocity distribution curves was related to changes in wind velocity the mean values of the distributions were also related to velocity. Author
