Wind Tunnels:  How good are they?
A brief discussion of experimental error

Conducting a rigorous scientifically based experiment isn't as easy as it might seem, since all experiments are subject to errors.  There are two main sources of error in most experiments:

  • Random errors
  • Systematic/Bias errors

It should be the responsibility of the experimentalist to address/comment on these errors in the communication of the results.
