Abstract : The effect of a pressure gradient on skin friction balance measurements in channel flow was investigated. Three channel heights and four disc configurations were employed. A proposed correction for pressure drag on the skin friction balance disc was found to yield satisfactory agreement between measured apparent stress and theoretical apparent stress for optimum disc configuration.
