Abstract

The data gathered at the Defense Research Agency's low-speed wind tunnel testing will be used in Boeing's next-generation 737 family of aircraft certification program; to assure the aircraft is safe to fly before flight tests being, and in creating programs for the flight simulator used for pilot training. The 5-meter pressurized, low-speed wind tunnel is deemed particularly valuable by airframe manufacturers because of its simulation capability for high-lift configurations associated with the critical takeoff and landing phases of flight. The tunnel's pressurization - up to three atmospheres - allows a range of scales to be tested so that full-scale performance can be estimated.
