Abstract
THE FEASIBILITY OF MODELING AND MODIFYING A BIVANE TO MEASURE SMALL SCALE AND VERTICAL WIND FLUCTUATIONS FOR USE IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS AND REMOTE GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS IS EXAMINED. THE THEORETICAL EQUATIONS USED TO DESCRIBE THE MOTION OF THE BIVANE ARE EXAMINED AND UTILIZED IN IMPROVING THE RESPONSE CHARACTERISTICS. A PROTOTYPE WILL BE TESTED IN THE WIND TUNNEL. THE INFORMATION GAINED FROM THESE TESTS WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE THE MODIFICATIONS NECESSARY TO CONSTRUCT A RUGGED AND DURABLE BIVANE AND VERIFY THE THEORETICAL MODEL DEVELOPED.
