Abstract

THE subject of turbulence is one of great interest in the field of aerodynamics, and many investigations are in progress in the aerodynamical laboratories of the world on various aspects of the subject. The recent international co‐operative measurements inaugurated under the auspices of the National Physical Laboratory of Great Britain have shown that turbulence is a factor of considerable importance in determining the forces acting on bodies in an air stream, and the chief question of the day is whether it is desirable to have large or small turbulence in wind tunnels.
