Abstract
A computer program was developed to obtain the wind tunnel wall corrections for wing angle of attack, induced drag, and pitching moment in incompressible flow. The vortex lattice method is used for computation of these correction factors. The program can be applied to wind tunnels of arbitrary cross-sectional shape, and wings of any desired planform, subject to the constraint of straight leading and trailing edges.
