THE Tsing Hua 15‐ft. wind tunnel, with interchangeable 18‐ft. section for full scale engine and airscrew tests, was recently erected in Central China. It was planned as the central organ for aerodynamic research in China and, as such, was subject to interesting design conditions. The main features of the tunnel design, as well as the considerations underlying their choice, are described in this article.
