Meeting Name

2nd Annual UMR Undergraduate Research Symposium (1992: Apr. 16, Rolla, MO)


This paper discusses the design and development of a new experimental system designed to produce a variety of steady and unsteady flows. Accelerating, decelerating and oscillating flows over lifting surfaces are primary examples of the unsteady flow configurations that can be generated. Also this report presents details of preliminary tests performed to determine the performance of this system. These include quantitative and qualitative testing on two-dimensional and three-dimensional flow configurations.
