MetadataShow full item record
A wind driven aerodynamic manipulator is provided for imparting motion to an aerodynamic model located in a wind tunnel. The manipulator comprises a support for supporting an aerodynamic body within a wind tunnel; a first aerodynamic surface affixed to the support in such a manner as to allow motion to be imparted to the aerodynamic body by an interaction between the first aerodynamic surface and a fluid flow within the wind tunnel; and a first controller for orienting the first aerodynamic surface with respect to the fluid flow. Additionally, a multi-dimensional manipulator is also disclosed.
