Our New Wind Tunnel is Awesome! - Graduate Education & Research Seminar
August 30, 2016 at 3:10 PM - 4:00 PM
Tegeler Hall, Carlo Auditorium
Over the summer of 2016, Parks College installed a new polysonic wind tunnel in Oliver Hall. Designed by graduate students and faculty from Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and funded by industry and SLU, this new wind tunnel provides a unique and important capability for studying a wide variety of compressible flows. This talk introduces the operation of the tunnel system with attention given to design concerns of each component. Measurement capabilities will also be discussed, along with future plans for enhancement.
