Abstract : Whenever geometrically scaled models of full-sized items are used in experiments and test work, the question arises as to the validity of the experiments in terms of the full scale item. This report contains an analysis made to determine whether or not scaled models could be used in a space thermal environment simulator and under what conditions useful information could be obtained.
