Boeing [NYSE: BA] and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have announced that Boeing will be the lead donor in the replacement of MIT's 79-year-old Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel
with a new Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel
that will be the largest and most advanced academic wind tunnel
in the United States, the companies said.
The College of Science has a requirement for a wind tunnel
for testing living birds.
The need for accuracy and timely delivery of design feedback places a high demand on aerodynamic simulation quality, because the simulation results will be used to predict the aerodynamic performance of the vehicle in a wind tunnel
experiment as well as under real road driving condition.
NASA said testing inside the wind tunnel
and additional analysis would continue into mid-2017, at which point the agency would compete for the final design contract.
There are very limited studies with the Class-8 sleeper tractor and 53ft long trailer comparing wind tunnel
test and CFD simulation with and without trailer aerodynamic device.
The wind tunnel
will be used in aerodynamic research to study the effects of air moving past solid objects with designers of new planes and cars being among those using the facilities.
Macdonald noted that Inflight's wind tunnel
flyers come from diverse backgrounds and for various reasons.
Force India is using Toyota Motorsport's wind tunnel
facilities in Cologne, Germany for all aerodynamic testing for the 2015 FIA Formula One world championship and beyond.
Not only is the capital investment for a climatic wind tunnel
large, but the operating costs can also be substantial.
We stood in the wind tunnel
with Wigbert while he sent a wind of 31-37mph down the void and across the car.
The CWT-100[TM] wind tunnel
can be used to characterize different heat sink sizes for natural and forced convection cooling.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the IRGC has built a wind tunnel
capable of generating supersonic airflows for testing missiles and space rockets.
