There are millions of automobiles in routine use whose shapes attest to the influence of external aerodynamics on the decisions of the designers. The main focus for production automobiles has been on aerodynamic drag, although lift has recei ved considerable attention as well.

Aerodynamic down load is most often the main objective for racing automobiles. Automobile companies are also keenly interested in knowing how to choose details of external shapes to reduce exterior and interior noise.

Racing yacht keels are the subject of intense investigations in efforts to achieve advantages of a few seconds per mile.

Architects routinely require aerodynamic evaluations of any prominent building almost anywhere. Nearly every building component is being subjected to aerodynamic evaluation if it is to be accepted for use in hurricane-prone areas such as Florida. The shapes of submarines and the details of their propulsion systems areevaluated asdesigners attempt tomaximize speed, minimize energy requirements, and minimize noise generation. Aerodynamic influences aresubstantial inthedesign of large bridges.

Yet the veil covering the secrets of theforces involved inthedynamic interactions of tluids and solid objects has only begun to be lifted and only in relatively recent times and continues to refuse all efforts to tear it cleanly away. The great advances in theory and computational capability notwithstanding, experimental explorations remain the mainstay for obtaining data for designers' refined and final decisions across a broad range of applications.

Low-Speed Wind Tunnel Testing, 3rd Edition

A primary tool of experimental aerodynamics is the wind tunnel. The proper and productive use of experimental investigations in general and wind tunnels inparticu- lar requires applications of aerodynamic theory and computational methods in the planning of facilities, the planning of experiments, and the interpretation of resulting data.

Those aspects of aerodynamics will be drawn upon heavily in the course of this book. To answer the question posed above: The invention, use, and ongoing evolution of the wind tunnel has been, and is now, motivated first by awide interest inpractical problems in aerodynamics and second by the fact that theoretical and computational methods have not been, are not now, and will not inthe foreseeable future becapable of providing the full range of results needed to guide detailed design decisions for many practical problems.

The most successful attack on virtually any aerodynamic design problem will be based on application of a combination of results from experimental, theoretical, and computational methods appropriately combined and leavened by experience.

Included in those and other texts are discussions of flow similarity in which definitions of similar flows are given. This is a very important concept that leads to significant advantages in experimental work and in theoretical and computational work as well. The most common approach to the concept of similarity is through dimensional analysis using some variation of the Buckingham Pi theorem.

A reduction in the number of independent parameters to be manipulated in an investigation is obtained based on the requirement of dimensional homogeneity for any equation expressing avalid relationship among physical variables.

Introductory treatments of dimensional analysis are given by Anderson? David and Nolle,7 and Baker, Westine, and Dodge. Such models are the norm rather than the exception, as becomes apparent when almost any specific wind tunnel program is being planned.

Although the application of dimensional analysis has been of great importance in studies in aerodynamics, that approach will not be elaborated at this point. The fundamental principles from which the equations used to model "low-speed" aerodynamic flows are derived are only three in number.

These are 1 mass is conserved, 2 force and motion are related by Newton's Second Law, and 3 energy exchanges are governed by the First Law of Thermodynamics.

In addition to these threeprinciples, certain fluid properties and their variations withpressure and temper- ature must bedescribed mathematically with sufficient accuracy for each application. The equations expressing thethree principles provide relationships among various quantities such as density, velocity, pressure, rate of strain, internal energy, and viscosity as they vary in space and time.

The dependence for aparticular quantity, say velocity, is indicated as VCr, t where r is a three-component position vector and t is time.

The details of the function expressing the space and time dependence arestrongly affected by the choice of reference frame while the physical phenomena cannot beaffected by thechoice of reference frame. It isdesirable tochoose reference frames that lead to relatively simple forms for the functional descriptions of the various quantities.

Two kinematic results of importance relate time derivatives from different per- spectives. One relation is between "Lagrangian" and "Eulerian" descriptions of the motion of particles.

The other relation is between the time derivatives of quantities when measurements are made from two reference frames that are moving relative to one another.

The Lagrangian and Eulerian perspectives of motion of a field of particles are described in almost every book on aerodynamics. The Lagrangian perspective is based on theidea of "tagging" every particle and subsequently describing themotion of each particle as afunction of time with a space coordinate indicating the identity of the particle.

The usual choice would be that the space coordinate indicates the position of the particle at time equal to zero. The Eulerian perspective is based on the idea of focusing on particular points in space and describing the motion of particles passing through each point in space as a function of time.

The time derivatives are related by Equation 1. The derivative from the Lagrangian perspective is referred to as a "total derivative" or "material derivative" and is indicated by the capital D as the derivative symbol. Flow Visualization.

Turbulence continues to confound us in many respects.

The dependence for aparticular quantity, say velocity, is indicated as VCr, t where r is a three-component position vector and t is time. It can be written as a partial differential equation as follows: In this equation and throughout the book p is the density of the fluid, t is the time, and V is the vector fluid velocity.
