Wind Tunnels

Wind Tunnels

We have a number of wind tunnels which are almost fully used. The Project tunnel shown below has a working section of 1.1m by 0.87m and a speed of approximately 50 m/s and is fitted with a six component displacement balance. There is also a boundary layer tunnel with a section 1.2 m wide but having a variable height.

How it works

A second, slightly smaller, tunnel is being refurbished with a new balance for teaching. We also have a hypersonic facility.
