Abstract:

Results of studies to determine the mass flow through circular flat ribbon canopies of several geometric porosities at steady flow conditions and during inflation and through 17 and 27 porous Hemisflo canopies during inflation are presented. Pressure distributions which were established as a necessary part of the study are also included. Author
