Jet-boundary and plan-form corrections for partial-span models with reflection-plane, end-plate, or no end-plate in a closed circular wind tunnel

Sivells, James C Deters, Owen J

A method is presented for determining the jet-boundary and plan-form corrections necessary for application to test data for a partial-span model with a reflection plane, an end plate, or no end plate in a closed circular wind tunnel. Examples are worked out for a partial-span model with each of the three end conditions in the Langley 19-foot pressure tunnel and the corrections are applied to measured values of lift, drag, pitching-moment, rolling-moment, and yawing-moment coefficients.
