Tunnel Tests on HighSpeed Seaplanes

Tunnel Tests on HighSpeed Seaplanes IN the early part of 1926, tests were carried out in the N. P. L. wind tunnels upon models of highspeed seaplanes for the Schneider TrophyCompetition in America. Owing to lack of time it was decided not to enter British machines for that contest, but the wind tunnel work was continued, as the Air Ministry wished to further the development of highspeed craft. After the 1926 contest the Air Ministry decided to allow R.A.F. seaplanes to be entered by the Royal Aero Club, and to assist the Club in the competition in the following year. The highspeed seaplane work was, therefore, again applied to machines for the Schneider Trophy Contest. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

IN the early part of 1926, tests were carried out in the N. P. L. wind tunnels upon models of highspeed seaplanes for the Schneider TrophyCompetition in America. Owing to lack of time it was decided not to enter British machines for that contest, but the wind tunnel work was continued, as the Air Ministry wished to further the development of highspeed craft. After the 1926 contest the Air Ministry decided to allow R.A.F. seaplanes to be entered by the Royal Aero Club, and to assist the Club in the competition in the following year. The highspeed seaplane work was, therefore, again applied to machines for the Schneider Trophy Contest.
