University Wind
Tunnel Benefits
Plane Research
The eight-foot University wind
tunnel has played an important part
in recent developments in industrial
and military aeronautical research, it
was learned yesterday.
"Whenever any radical change in
design or in the size of an airplane
is undertaken," a recent statement by
the Department of Engineering Re-
search declares, "it is essential that
the effect of the changes on the
speed, stability and control be studied.
Research work in wind tunnels has
progressed to a point where studies
carried forward on models in modern
wind tunnels result in accurate infor-
mation on the effects."
Models of the airplanes to be test-
ed are suspended on wires and placed
n the University wind tunnel, which
has a maximum throat opening of
eight feet and a maximum wind speed
of 110 miles per hour. The wind
velocity ranges from 15 miles per hour
up. The models are generally five to
six feet, from wing tip to wing tip.
The air which is played on the model
is drawn around a miniature plane
and then back again, thus attaining
a high efficiency.
Some of the most important phases
of the research deal with measure-
ment of lifting and resistance forces1
of the model. In the testing of the
Lockheed "Electra" in the accom-
panying photograph, wax was used to
reproduce the windshield, air resist-
ance and glare problems.

the battle for the two nominatidns
to the Board of Regents. Pre-con-
vention gossip has it that Harry G.
Kipke, former football coach, is
likely to get the nomination unless
a number of delegations forget their
pledges. Alfred Connable also is re-
ceiving considerable mention as a
candidate in case a revolt against
Kipke breaks out on the floor.
Rudolph E. Reichert, president of'
the Ann Arbor Savings and Commer-

not declared whether he will run or
not. He is known to have considerable

arrivals declare.
