    The results of propulsion tests are usually given in diagrams, as shown in Fig. Delivered power and propeller rpm are plotted over speed. The results of the propulsion test prediction are validated in the sea trial of the ship introducing necessary corrections for wind, seaway, and shallow water. ARNOLD AIR FORCE BASE, Tenn. (AFNEWS) -- Arnold Engineering Development Center workers completed the last developmental wind tunnel test in February for all Joint Strike Fighter variants, helping put the F Lightning II a step closer to manufacturing. It was the culmination of more than 8, hours and $50 million worth of wind tunnel testing of the Joint Strike Fighter over the past five.
