MEASUREMENT OF DRAG USING A MOMENTUM BALANCE

This note presents the results of the application of a momentum control surface analysis to the estimation of the drag of bodies and surfaces placed in the test section of a wind tunnel. The assumptions of the method are stated and accuracy of the method considered with particular reference to the drag of riblet surfaces at high subsonic speeds, the drag of two-dimensional cavities at both high subsonic and low supersonic speeds, and the drag of manipulators.
