Abstract:

This report presents improved data reduction and analysis procedures for 3DOF data from continuous wind tunnels. The Chapman-Kirk method is employed in the development of programs designed to extract aerodynamic coefficients from 3DOF motion. Noise sources inherent in the 3DOF gas bearing measurement system and found in typical test environments are studied. The validity of extracted aerodynamic coefficients in the presence of these noise sources is addressed.
