    Jul 01, 2020 Blockage is the interaction effect between the flow past a body and the surrounding boundaries in constrained flow conditions. Its effects have been discussed since the early application of laboratories to study aero- and hydrodynamic phenomena (Glauert 1933).Wind tunnels, towing tanks and other fluid-dynamics laboratories are prone to induce interaction effects not seen in full-scale open ...

    Many wind tunnel tests are conducted with scaled models with the intention of determining the characteristics of full-scale flight aircraft. This is done to reduce costs and to obtain experimental measurements within a reasonable amount of time. There is, however, a great leap between a small-scale wind tunnel test and a full-scale flying vehicle.

    direction, creating what is known as the Blockage Effect, see Figure 1. The blockage effect, by the vane anemometer. , is the sum of solid blockage, s, and wake blockage, w, i.e. = s w. Solid blockage results from the flow being unable to pass through an object and hence is a function of the area causing the blockage.

    Blockage Corrections for Three

    Theoretical blockage corrections are presented for a body of revolution and for a three-dimensional unswept wing in a circular or rectangular wind tunnel. The theory takes account of the effects of the wake and of the compressibility of the fluid, and is based on the assumption that the dimensions of the model are small in comparison with those of the tunnel throat.

    Dec 10, 1988 Blockage corrections for the experimental results obtained for a small-scale wind turbine in a wind tunnel are required in order to estimate how the same turbine would perform in real conditions. The tunnel blockage is defined as the ratio of the wind turbine swept area to the wind tunnel cross-section area. Experimental measurements of the power coefficient were performed on a horizontal …
