The Flettner rotor is attracting increasing attention as a viable technology for wind-assisted ship propulsion. Nonetheless, the influence of the Reynolds number on the aerodynamic performance of rotating cylinders is still unclear and under debate. The present study deals with a series of wind-tunnel experiments on a large-scale Flettner...

Measurements on a simple aircraft model in both an appropriately sized and a relatively large, low-speed, solid-wall test section were used to analyse the accuracy and consistency of measured-boundary-condition (MBC) methods. For completeness, the classical method of images, with two different correction procedures, was also analysed. For the...

An experimental investigation was carried out in the low speed wind tunnel LST to study aircraft engine noise generation by rotor/stator interaction. Reported is a follow-up experiment including detailed acoustic measurements in the duct downstream of a rotor with cylindrical pins to complement earlier tests whereby rotor wake velocities and...

A wind tunnel test procedure is described to determine from the thrust minus drag measurements the aircraft drag and engine/airframe interference drag at cruise conditions. The definitions of the thrust and drag terms in use are given. Engine thrust simulation is provided by a calibrated Turbofan Powered Simulator (TPS). Further the use of a...

A "measured-boundary-condition" method for determining 2D wall interference has been developed. It applies measured "wall" pressure distributions and a model representation to determine the 2D interference flow field associated with the presence of the test section walls. Special attention has been paid to the model representation. The...

An experimental investigation was carried out concerning the effect of jet heating and external flow on the mean flow properties of a subsonic jet. A 60 mm diameter jet was tested in a wind tunnel at wind speeds of 0 and 60 m/s. Jet mach numbers varied between O.44 and 0.94 and jet total temperatures were 310 and 86O K. Velocity and temperature...
