Development of a Driver Code for the WICS ProjectWall Interference Correction System (WICS) is a computational technique to evaluate the wind tunnel wall interference corrections for blockage, Mach number, dynamic pressure and angle of attack. The objective is to predict the effects of the bounding walls on wind tunnel measurements [1]. The procedure attempts to compute these corrections in real time so that the test engineer can implement these by adjusting wind tunnel controls for angle of attack and dynamic pressure while the test is in progress in the 12 ft. pressure wind tunnel at the Ames Research Center. The technique utilizes an ideal flow solver PMARC (Panel Method developed at the Ames Research Center) to compute influence coefficients in an internal flow mode by representing a paneled model of the tunnel for fullspan and semispan tests.
