Subsonic Wind Tunnels
MODULAR AIR FLOW BENCH
A fully mobile bench to provide basic airflow facilities to enable a wide range of practical airflow investigations. Suitable for demonstration, laboratory and project work at a basic level.
The AF10 is a base unit for the following experiment modules and kits
An experimental module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench (not included) to provide experiments that investigate and support Bernoulli's equation.
An experimental module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench (not included) to provide experiments that measure and compare the effects of drag force on objects mounted in an airstream that have the same projected frontal area but different shape. Facilities to compare drag force measurement methods are included.
An experimental module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench (not included) for the analysis of an emerging jet-stream and its break-up as it moves away from the outlet. Also allows velocity distribution and momentum flux to be evaluated.
An optional experiment module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench (not included). For students to study boundary layers on rough and smooth flat plates. Includes a pitot to measure velocity profiles. Also allows experiments with pressure gradients.
Optional supporting products for the AF10
A 14-tube multi-range water manometer for use with the AF10 Airflow Bench (not included).
