Wind Tunnel Laboratory

The Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering has a number of testing facilities and capabilities to allow for cutting-edge research within the aerospace field.

Low Speed Wind Tunnel

The low-speed wind tunnel is a closed-loop tunnel that has a test section of 1.2m by 0.8m and a velocity of 10 to 60 m/s.

Atmospheric Wind Tunnel

The atmospheric wind tunnel is an open-loop tunnel ideal for testing turbulent boundary layer problems, with a test section size of 0.94 by 1.1 m and a velocity range of 0 to 15 m/s.
