THE 5‐ft. wind‐tunnel of the National Tsing Hua University in Peiping was the first wind‐tunnel to operate in China. The erection of the tunnel was a project of the Aeronautical Institute, established in 1933 as a division of the Mechanical Engineering Department. The organisation of the Institute at that time was carried out under the direction of Dr. Y. H. Ku, Dean of Engineering, and Prof. C. T. Chwang, in charge of the Mechanical Engineering Department.
