Wind Tunnel

More information.

Open circuit, closed throat, large wind tunnel for both automotive and aeronautical research.

Specification

  • Working section, 1.92m (W) x 1.32m (H) x 3.6m (L)
  • Contraction Ratio of 7.4:1
  • Parallel, steady flow in working section
  • Velocity variation in the working area of the jet to be less than 0.2% deviation from the average
  • Angular variation in the working area of the jet to be less than 0.1 degree deviation from the average flow angle
  • Target working section velocity of 40m/s (90 mph) to allow representative Reynolds numbers to be acheived.
  • Target working section turbulence intensity of 0.15% to allow high quality aeronautical research to be undertaken.
  • Retractable moving ground-plane with leading edge and under-belt suction.
  • 6-Component, underfloor, virtual-centre balance.
  • Maximum model weight is 30kg
