Abstract:

Development of the subsonic cascade wind tunnel facility required determination of the two-dimensionality and periodicity of the airflow in the test section with test cascade installed. Data acquisition procedures were developed and data were recorded for two facility configurations. The flow was shown to be unsatisfactory at a diffusion factor of approximately 0.58 and aspect ratio 1.25, and to be acceptably two-dimensional and periodic at a diffusion factor of approximately 0.39 and aspect ratio 1.95.
