We present here a Java applet derived from
which simulates the operation of the Wright 1901 Wind Tunnel.
There are two versions of this applet. The
requires the user to manually record data and plot results in the same way
that the Wright brothers acquired their data. The version presented here
is a more modern version which records and reduces the data and produces plots
within the program.
You can download your own copy of this applet by pushing the following button:
