Abstract:This dissertation for the first time analyzed the turbulence effect on the simplified Jones' equation with measurements using a Pitot probe, and found that this method includes a portion of the turbulence effect into account implicitly, depending on the nose shape of the probe. A method for estimating this implicit correction was developed. Finally, wake survey techniques for determining the drag of objects with highly turbulent wakes were recommended.
