IT was, we believe, MR MCKINNON WOOD who many years ago coined the picturesque phrase ‘the finer tools of research’ for wind‐tunnels. In one sense the expression nowadays seems singularly inappropriate in view of the vast structures which they and their accessories have become, but on the other hand, of course, all these developments have taken place in order to make them more and more instruments of precision and they are in consequence infinitely ‘finer’ tools than they were twenty or so years ago.
