This paper describes the investigation carried out to answer whether the forces and moments measured in the wind tunnel under quasi-steady state conditions are representative of the transient period during which a vehicle encounters a wind gust. The experimental facility is described, as are the airstream calibration procedures, the tests performed, and the test results.
