CORRELATION TESTS IN A CLIMATIC WIND-TUNNEL

The report illustrates the first steps of full-scale aerodynamic correlation tests in the Volvo Climatic Wind-Tunnel and the knowledge achieved, applied to every day testing. The scale model testing reported is a summary of the efforts involved trying to convert the climatic tunnel to an acceptable aerodynamic test facility. A short introduction of non-aerodynamic data has been included. Quality data for full-scale operation and aerodynamic performance are followed by reports of full- scale testing. The purpose of these tests has been to establish correlation in the sense of setpoint curves and accuracy limits. For the scale model test insert, measurements of flow quality and investigating tests with passenger car models are reported. /GMRL/
