The open wind tunnel trainer (FR – 010) tends to allow performing experiments in the field of aerodynamics andfluid mechanics using various models. The flow medium is set in motion & the model being studied remains still and so the flow around the model is generated.

  • The trainer is considered as an “Eiffel” type open wind tunnel used to demonstrate and measure the aerodynamic properties of various models.
  • The air is drawn in from the environment and accelerated.
  • The air flows around a model, such as an aerofoil, in a transparent and closed measuring section.
  • The air is then decelerated in a diffuser and pumped back into the open by a fan.
  • The trainer is provided with a nozzle contour and a flow straightener that ensure a uniform velocity distribution with little turbulence in the closed measuring section.
  • The flow cross-section of the measuring section is square.
  • The built-in axial fan with outlet guide vane system and a variable-speed drive is characterized by an energy-efficient operation at high efficiency.
  • The trainer allows reaching air velocities of up to 28 m/s.
  • The trainer is equipped with an electronic two-component force sensor, Lift and drag are detected and displayed digitally.
  • The air velocity in the measuring section is displayed on the inclined tube manometer.
  • The tube manometers or the electronic pressure measurement are recommended for measuring the pressure distribution on bodies.
  • Extensive accessories allow a variety of experiments, for example lift measurements, pressure distributions, boundary layer analysis or visualization of streamlines.
