Wind tunnel

Roehampton Vale houses a full-size wind tunnel, used to perform tests on student-designed prototypes, such as parachutes, water speed vehicles and motorbikes.

The tunnel has a six-axis balance to measure lift, drag, side force, pitching moment, yaw torque and roll torque. It is equipped with a modern data logging system.

Our laser doppler anemometry system allows us to make accurate velocity measurements in the wind tunnel.
