Experiments in wind tunnel have unique features that cannot be addressed with standard statistical design of experiments (DOE) methods. An aspect of DOE that relies on specification of an empirical model of the response is especially useful in the design of wind tunnel experiments. Load of an aircraft is a special type of measurement that relates to duration of each experimental run and is a function of vibration. This presentation addresses challenges in wind tunnel experimentation and analysis of such data. It addresses the design issues related to wind tunnel test, in particular with a load investigation study. We will discuss aspect of modeling in terms of response variable and its relationship to design. We provide a solution to address the sample size determination problem and conclude with remarks regarding this type of experiment.
