Abstract : The paper contains a brief, illustrated description of the Magnetic Model Facility at the U. S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory. The primary emphasis is on the use of the Facility in conducting magnetic ship model studies. First, a synopsis is given of techniques for designing magnetic ship models and of problems associated with scaling magnetic characteristics of ferrous items. Next, a description is given of the Facility including: the coil system, the model range, the digital recording system, and other major items of equipment. Finally, a discussion is included on techniques of automated data acquisition and data analysis. (Author)
