Wind Tunnel of Ville d'Avray

Velocity, pressure and extraction of every conduit were captured using a laser Doppler anemometer.

The model used in the wind tunnel with breakthrough wall for pressures analyzes.
Description of the wind tunnel
In this experiment, we used a subsonic Prandtl wind tunnel


50 m/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.

Measuring device


The yellow fluid shows how a conduit acts against the prevailing wind.

Operation of the wind tunnel


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