Abstract : AGARD's Fluid Dynamics Panel conducted a symposium to review and examine the results of aerodynamic investigations carried out in water facilities. These test facilities include water tunnels, towing channels and stationary tanks. The author of this technical evaluation report observes that the use of water as a medium for both aerodynamic and hydrodynamic testing is gradually gaining wider acceptance. This meeting allowed the specialists to gather and discuss their results, compare techniques and find solutions to problems. Keywords: Model basins; Hydraulic test tunnels; Aerodynamics.
