The Oxford Magnetic Suspension and Balance System: a brief history & development status

Abstract:

This paper traces the history of the Oxford Magnetic Suspension and Balance System, from its initial development in the 1960s through to current times. Developed in conjunction with the Oxford Low Density Tunnel, the balance has been a key instrument throughout its history for investigating aerodynamic forces at high Mach numbers, low density flows across the continuum, slip and transition regimes. An initial balance was developed as a 2-axis system with control over only lift and drag. Follo...
