The model used in the wind tunnel with breakthrough wall for pressures analyses.

Description of the wind tunnel

In this experiment, we used a subsonic Prandtl wind tunnel

 

50m/s

Test Area: 450*450*700

1% turbulence intensity

Connecting the model

 

140 openings were carried out with a regular interval in order to connect the pipes to measuring device.

Operation of the wind tunnel

 

The wind tunnel sends wind to 20m/s. Each pipe connected to the piercing transmits pressure or extraction to the measuring device.
