Water Tunnels

This equipment is a complementary tool to wind tunnels, has the capability to operate at higher Reynolds numbers and can demonstrate more streamline details and flow behaviour.

The test section is optimized for airplane testing and uses DAQ to capture data on 6 DOF force balance. It captures speed flow and uses an ink system to show the flow behaviour. Water Tunnels can optimize costs, making small scale model manufacturing easier and more affordable.
