The LTLS wind tunnel is a low-speed, closed loop, quiet facility. Speed is stable from 0.1 up to 40m/s. Turbulence level is below 0.04%. Test section is 0.609m wide, 0.910m high and 6m long. We have several interchangeable test sections. Located in rm. 263, Wolfson.

We measure pressures, forces, velocities and perform PIV and flow visualization in this facility. More details...

Low turbulence low speed wind tunnel (LTLSWT)

The MLF is combined from two wind tunnels with a common test section. It is an open-loop, low-speed facility (1-13m/s). Each stream velocity is independently controlled. The upper stream can be heated by ??? Deg. The test section is 0.6m wide, 0.6m high and 2m long. Located at rm. 263, Wolfson.

We measure pressures, velocities (HW & PIV), temperatures and perform flow visualization in this facility. More details...

Mixing layer facility (MLF)

The Actuator lab is used to bench-top test the performance of flow control actuators. It can accommodate all our wind tunnel models in environmentally controlled room. A 3D traversing system is situated on an optical table. A compressible calibration jet is available .
We also have a low-speed trust vectoring experiment in this lab.

We measure velocities, unsteady pressures and perform flow viz in this lab. Located at rm. 263, Wolfson.
