This paper describes the results of an experimental study on the drag coefficient of a two-dimensional sharp-edged plate placed on a plane boundary at different inclinations to the flow. Experimental data were collected to investigate the effects of (i) inclination of the plate to the flow, (ii) the relative submergence of the plate in a turbulent boundary layer, and (iii) the proximity of the tunnel walls to the plate, on the drag coefficient of the plate. Relations have been developed to enable correction for “blockage effect” and also to evaluate the effects of inclination of the plate and the presence of the boundary layer on the drag coefficient of the plate. Data collected by other investigators in wind tunnels of various dimensions have also been used in the development of the foregoing relations.
