A wind tunnel is a test facility used in aerodynamics to study the effects of an air flow on a body, generally a model of reduced size compared to the real one.
A wind tunnel is made up of an aerodynamic circuit including a test stream. The air circuit can be opened or closed.
It is possible to carry out measurements such as visualizations of flow in a wind tunnel. Most often it is impossible to carry out these measurements in real conditions. A wind tunnel also designates a free fall simulator. In this case the air flow is directed upwards.
Wind Tunnel Type 818020-F is one of the company’s masterpieces in which the diameter of the jet outlet is 180 mm and the length of working section is 190mm.
