Summary of the technology

Research and testing services handle measurement and control of steady and unsteady complex flows in subsonic wind tunnels using a spectrum of size and velocity ranges, and measurement of wing performance.
Project ID : 12-2011-232

Description of the technology

The Meadow Aerodynamics Laboratory & Microfluidics Laboratory
School of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Flow Measurements in a Subsonic Wind Tunnel

The Aerodynamics Laboratory is a world-wide leading center in the field of flow control and measurements of unsteady complex flows.
The lab is equipped with five (5) wind tunnels, covering a large spectrum of sizes and velocity ranges. Some of the tunnels excel in a low turbulence level, which is the best experimental choice for measuring wing performances at low velocities (small Reynolds numbers).
Additionally, the lab supplies the following services:
- Measurement of forces and moments on two and three dimensional models.
- Characterization of velocity fields through flow visualization in smoke, "surface oil" and its measurements using seven-holes probe and particle image velocimetry (PIV).
The lab is staffed with skillful highly-motivated and scientifically experienced team, having expertise in the operation of the experimental system, hardware and software.

Experiments are tailor-made and can be initiated shortly after order
