A method is described which simplifies the derivation of many wind tunnel data reduction equations. Standard matrix techniques are used for the solution of the simultaneous equations encountered in the transformation of vector components from one axes system to another. Two typical applications are presented: the determination of aero dynamic angles and the transfer of aerodynamic loads from body to wind axes.
