MOVING GROUND PLANE WIND TUNNEL TESTS ON SEVERAL TRACKED AIR CUSHION VEHICLE (TACV) MODELS

Test results are presented for four models. Briefly, the objectives of the program were: (a) Determination of whether a moving ground plane simulation is necessary for valid TACV wind tunnel test results. (b) Determination of the aerodynamic characteristics of air cushions. (c) Determination of the aerodynamic characteristics of TACV bodies. (Author)
