Abstract : This instrumentation system is intended mainly for measuring air pressure distribution on models tested in David Taylor Model Basin lowturbulence wind tunnel. The system automatically scans, digitizes, and records up to 21 air pressure inputs at the rate of one pressure reading per second. The report describes th salient features of the instrumentation, gives procedures for connecting, operating, and calibrating, and summarizes the results of an evaluation of the system.
