The measurement of model drag in the High Speed Water Tunnel has been difficult because of the interaction of pitching moment and the measured drag forces. Due to the mechanical arrangement of the force table used. pitching moment will produce reaction at the drag gage causing an erroneous reading. An internal balance has been fabricated which measures pitching moment. allowing a correction to be applied to the drag gage reading.
