For the constrained effects imposed by the walls of a wind tunnel around the vehicle, there is The Wind Tunnel Effect either appears as a "Tunnel effect of Wind" in Building design or as a "Wind tunnel blockage effect(s)" in Wind tunnel testing. The effect pertains to the wall bounded (constrained) flow. Wind tunnel effect is the phenomenon

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus An extensive test program was conducted to gather information on wall-interference effects for parachutes in closed wind tunnels. Drag area and base pressure measurements were made for a set of ribbon parachutes of 7%, 15% and 30% geometric porosity in six different wind tunnels, covering a range of geometric blockages from two to thirty-five   Wind tunnels are designed for a specific purpose and speed range and there is a wide variety of wind tunnel types and model instrumentation. The model to be tested in the wind tunnel is placed in the test section of the tunnel. The speed in the test section is determined by the design of the :// Computation of wall effects in ventilated transonic wind tunnels. A method for computing interference effects due to ventilated wind-tunnel walls on lifting transonic airfoils is presented. Differences between the present method based on nonlinear transonic theory and the classical correction formulae from linear subsonic theory are
