The roar of a ninety mile an hour
gale sweeping down the wind tunnel
in the east engine building and the
dull throb of huge generators forc-
ing the air around its course is but
one of the many wondrous exhibits
that will meet visitors to the en-
gineering open house April 30.
Models of planes developed and
tested in the engine school which
have since become famous are on
display. Tests on the first Lockheed
"Electra" were run in the wind tun-
nel, and the original model used will
be exhibited at the open house. The
"Electra" is one of the craft pro-
duced currently by the Lockheed
When automobile streamlining in-
vestigations began, a model for the
first Graham was brought to the en-
gineering school to be examined. This
model remains and may be seen by
visitors on April 30.
In the wind tunnel proper an ex-
hibit will be arranged to demonstrate
actual work on experimental models.
All forces on the mode are recorded
automatically on instruments
through wires leading from the plane
to the instrument. Through cal-
culations thus obtained the aeronau-

tical engineer can predict the per-
formance of the life size plane under
actual flying conditions.
In addition to the large tunnel used
for research, a smaller tunnel 'has
been constructed to aid in instruct-
ing classes. Airplane manufacturing
companies frequently conduct tests
here as do the army and navy, for
tunnels of this type are rare and often
unavailable to private concerns.
In another section of the aeronau-
tical division structural tests inves-
tigatiig rigidity of leading edges of
wings, elevators and rudders will be
conducted. In this laboratory tests
were run on the "flying wing." A rev-
olutionary type of plane when first
introduced, it is designed to eliminate
the body of the plane, providing stor-
age and passenger space in the wings.
The success of this type of aircraft
has not as yet been demonstrated.
However, from tests conducted at the
University it has been predicted that
larger transport and transcontinen-
tal carriers will soon be designed in
this more efficient manner.
