Aerodynamic Laboratory

The Experimental Aerodynamics Laboratory is equipped with different wind tunnels of various dimensions, typology and test regimes. The experimental equipment enables to perform a wide range of tests. The main plant is a closed circuit wind tunnel with a test section of 1.5m x 1m and a maximum wind velocity of 55m/s. The experimental activity mainly includes pressure and force measurements, hot wire anemometry and particle image velocimetry (PIV). Tests are carried out in various research fields, from basic fluid dynamics to industrial applications. A large part of the laboratory activities is also carried out in the GVPM wind tunnel (https://www.windtunnel.polimi.it ↗).
