... in Novosibirsk was conducting supersonic wind tunnel experiments, studying gas flow around solid models of various shapes. To help visualize the flow around the models, the flow stream was seeded with small metal particles that could be tracked with laser diagnostics. The researchers observed that as the flow...

..., specimens have been attached to rocket sleds propelled at speeds up to 1700 m/s (5580 ft/s) through an artificial rain field. Wind tunnels have also been adapted for rain erosion tests. As noted earlier, cavitation erosion test methods such as the vibratory method ( Fig. 6 ) have also been used...

..., and he tested his design with a model in a wind tunnel at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was later determined that the amount of wind resistance brought about by Dean’s streamlining had reduced the drag by 47% at a speed of 95 miles per hour. The front of the train, which sloped down like...

... or even wind tunnels. Friction of ship hulls versus water has been measured by restraining the ship ashore with a line fastened to a force-measuring bollard as the ship powers to pull away. Of course, wind force can be measured by rotating electrical generators and sensitive electronic meters...
