Aerodynamics Lab

The Wind Tunnel Laboratory allows experimentation and investigation of air flow (i.e., aerodynamics) and is therefore a valuable resource for engineering project testing, fluid mechanics coursework and alternative energy courses.

The centerpiece of the Wind Tunnel Laboratory is a 33 foot long wind tunnel featuring a 50 hp motor capable of producing air velocities between 1 and 90 m/s (2 to 200 mph) in a test section that is 18 inches long, 12 inches tall, and 12 inches wide. The laboratory specifically focuses on air flow (i.e., aerodynamics) experiments and is therefore a valuable resource for fluid mechanics, alternative energy (e.g., wind turbines and blades), and even studies pertaining to wind flow around building structures.
