The economical advantages of applying transonic flow technology to aircraft design has created a large number of computational methods to predict and analyse transonic flows. The proof of validity and the refinement of such methods depend primarily on experimental results. Consequently errors inherent to data generated by any individual test facility may enter the computer codes thus restricting their applicability. To aid in the development and refinement of computational methods and to improve their applicability and compatibility an experimental data base was established, presenting selected test results and detailed geometric descriptions of representative airfoil, wing, wing-body and body-alone configurations. In addition, the basic limitations of the available data as well as suggestions for future tests designed to reduce these limitations are discussed in detail.
