Paper presented at the 5th International Conference on Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, South Africa, 1-4 July, 2007.
This paper mainly develops a numerical procedure to
evaluate the interference of a support system and to optimize
the shape of the support system to minimize the interference.
The method is used to compute the support interference on a
high-speed wind tunnel test article. The numerical compensated
test result is also presented in this paper, and the result show
that the correction method developed in this paper is reasonable
