SURVEYOR'S NOTEBOOK

Old Time Model Testing

By Rik van Hemmen

When I wrote the blog on SWATHs I decided to see if I could locate my Virginia Tech research partner, Mark Tesh. With LinkedIn this was not all that difficult. He enjoyed hearing about the Monoform all these years ago, and remembered having taken photos back in 1981.

In those days cameras and video tape actually did exist, but it was not part of our budget, and Mark used his own camera and own dark room set-up to take photos of the test configuration. By the time my research advisor asked me to write a paper on the research I had forgotten about the photos, but now they are reunited after all those years.

Yes that is me, hair and proper lab wear; Virginia Tech T shirt and cut off jeans.
