APPLICATION OF SCALING DATA TO MODEL TESTS TO OBTAIN FULL-SCALE RESULTS

The purpose of this document is to consider at the beginning of the Subway Environmental Research Project, the methodology for relating the experimental scale modeling data to full-scale predictions. The similitude laws being developed at CIT/JPL are considered in terms of their application to the geometrically scaled experiments to be run at DSI/AT. A procedure for scaling the DSI/AT data at full-scale is discussed and examples are given.
