Abstract:

Aerodynamic loads were experimentally determined using 116-scale models of the flow-shaping device configurations to be used with the newly developed flow-shaping technique for testing full-scale inletengine systems in the AEDC 16-ft Propulsion Wind Tunnel Transonic at high angles of attack and at combinations of angle of attack and angle of yaw. The wind tunnel operating characteristics and performance limitations with the inletengine and the flow- shaping devices installed were also determined.
