Abstract:

Since May 1971, the new anechoic flow facility at the Naval Ship Research and Development Center has been undergoing periodic operational exercises and calibrations to determine the extent to which the facility may be used in the study of flow-induced noise. Some preliminary results are available with respect to both acoustical and aerodynamic calibrations. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the aerodynamic performance characteristics of the facility with regard to the established design specifications and to present some preliminary aerodynamic calibration data.
