Abstract : The general three-dimensional force problem can be solved by strain-gage measurements on an elastic system. In addition, the elastic system on which the measurements are made can be fitted into a supersonic wind tunnel of the size used at the Lone Star Laboratory. The points of measurement can be located very near to the model, in contrast with the usual wind-tunnel balances, and the use of an elastic measuring device eliminates the ordinary problems which arise from friction and deformation.
