    Flow unsteadiness in transonic and supersonic tunnels often causes large scatter and when excessive, even impedes dynamic stability measurements by contechnique utilising the tunnel unsteadiness as primary excitation on flexure mounted models for dynamic stability measurements in a trisonic blow down tunnel is presented in this paper. A time series autoregressive modelling technique is used for deriving a digital spectrum of the unsteadiness excited model response and the system damping is evaluated from the half power bandwidth of the spectrum. A typical record length used for the spectral analysis is 1.5 seconds. The technique validated by comparisons with conventional free osicilation pitch damping measurements on two models at subsonic and transonic speeds, is well suited for configurations is short duration intermittent facilities.
