Abstract : The meeting of the Flow Mechanics Test Technique Committee of the German Aerospace Society dealt with the subject of force-measurement on parts of wind tunnel models. Such measurements on rudders, tailplanes, flaps and other parts of the model are used more and more in combination with conventional total force tests. Such tests offer additional information to the aerodynamicist, which cannot be provided by conventional methods or by large efforts only.
