Abstract

A PROPOSAL to replace the 7‐ft. No. 1 wind tunnel at the N.P.L. by two new tunnels of the open jet type, housed in the old tunnel building, was put forward in 1930, and one of the new tunnels has now been completed and tested. The present report deals mainly with preliminary experiments on models, which were carried out to ensure that the projected tunnels should give the best possible aerodynamic performance.
