Gemini South Wind Tests, May 2000

Version 2.0, Release Date: August 1, 2001



On May 8-12, 2000, we had a unique opportunity to simultaneously measure wind speed, wind pressures, and structural response at the Gemini South 8m telescope on Cerro Pachon in Chile. This CD contains the raw wind and pressure data, some basic reduction of that data, and a description of the methods used in the reduction. Since the tests were chosen by design of experiments (DOE) techniques, that analysis is provided as well.
