Abstract

AN attempt is made here to summarize the present state of the theory of wind tunnel wall interference in a form that will be of some value to those using wind tunnels. The type of wind tunnel work frequently carried out without a complete knowledge of the corrections is also mentioned as it is of interest to those asking for, and using, wind tunnel results. A list of the most useful published reports on the subject is given at the end of the article, it is, however, by no means a complete guide to the literature of the subject, much of which is contained in academic volumes not usually available to the engineer using a wind tunnel.
