"The theory of cascades, made up of a series of flat plates placed one behind the other, is extended to the case where the impinging stream is not uniform, and the deduced properties of this cascade-flow are then applied to the study of the wall interference between such as cascade-like boundary and a vortex-source type of singularity.

The wind tunnel interference flow field. The presence of wind tunnel walls adds velocities to the flow field around a test model that are absent in free air and must be taken into account when interpreting the force, moment and pressure by: Abstract. Planned as an introduction to some of the topics covered in this Symposium, this short review of the application of transonic-flow theory to problems of wind-tunnel interference is restricted to sonic and subsonic speeds.

It must be stressed, however, that the interference at supersonic speeds poses problems which in practice might be more important than the Cited by: 8. Transonic Aerodynamics Wind Tunnel Testing Considerations W.H. Mason Configuration Aerodynamics Class.

The flow over an open aircraft bay is often represented in a wind tunnel with a cavity. In flight, this flow is unconfined, though in experiments, the cavity is surrounded by wind tunnel walls.

If untreated, wind tunnel wall effects can lead to significant distortions of cavity acoustics in subsonic flows. To understand and mitigate these cavity–tunnel interactions, a Cited by: A General Solution for Wind Tunnel Boundary-Induced Interference in Two-Dimensional for Wind Tunnel Boundary-Induced Interference in Two-Dimensional Subsonic Flow."
