Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to summarize the broad aspects of the aerodynamic tests that have been performed over the last twenty years on oscillating bodies and wings in European wind tunnels. While an extensive list of references is available in the open literature, there does not seem to be a general awareness in the United States government or aerospace industry of the intensity and diversity of European efforts. This report gives the background of the development of the major European testing facilities and illustrates the payoffs that have been accrued in the Netherlands, Germany, France and England.
