Abstract : Lecture notes for the AGARD Fluid Dynamics Panel (FDP) Special Course on 'Advances in Cryogenic Wind Tunnel Technology' have been assembled in this report. Subjects included cryogenic systems, thermal insulation, facility and model design and construction, strain-gage balances, pressure instrumentation, flow visualization, data accuracy, safety, and productivity. In addition, there were reports on various operational cryogenic facilities. The material assembled in this report was prepared under the combined sponsorship of the AGARD Fluid Dynamics Panel, the Consultant and Exchange Program of AGARD, and the von Karman Institute (VKI) for Fluid Dynamics.
