2ft x 2ft (61 cm x 61cm) ELD
Closed Circuit Wind Tunnel
This is a general purpose flow system with an 8 ft (244 cm) long test section. This tunnel can be operated with a closed or an open (Goettingen style) test section. With a minimal obstruction in the closed test section, the in-line axial fan can provide ca 50 m/sec flow speed. Hence, nominally 27 KW can be made available for aerodynamic investigations.
