The test section of the High-Speed Water Tunnel (1) was modified in preparation for experiments on the force and cavitation characteristics of torpedo fins and control surfaces mounted on a reflection plane. The modification involved installing a reflection plane in the 14-inch diameter working section of the tunnel. The reflection plane is described and the results of flow calibrations of the tunnel test section with the reflection plane installed are given. This report summarizes the work completed under Task 4 of Contract NOrd-16200.
