FLOW

VISUALIZATION FACILITY

A dedicated low turbulence wind tunnel is available for flow visualization studies. The current facility is operated in a suction mode and has an 1.5’ x 1.5’ test section that is 3’ in length.

  • To minimize wall effects, the test section is supplied by a 1ft x 1ft nozzle.

  • Current top speed is approximately 25 MPH, however with a motor change the tunnel is capable of a top speed over 85 MPH.

  • Three sides of the test chamber are acrylic, providing excellent optical assess for non-intrusive laser base studies.
