Subsonic Wind Tunnels
SUBSONIC WIND TUNNEL
An open circuit suction subsonic wind tunnel with a working section of 300 mm by 300 mm and 600 mm long.
A compact, practical open-circuit suction wind tunnel for studying aerodynamics. The wind tunnel saves time and money compared with full-scale wind tunnels or airborne laboratories, and it offers a wide variety of experiments. The wind tunnel gives accurate results and is suitable for undergraduate study and research projects. TecQuipment offers a comprehensive range of optional models and instrumentation, including a computer-based data acquisition system.
The AF100 is a base unit for the following experiment modules and kits
A cylinder model with a single pressure tapping point for use with the AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
A 150 mm chord 300 mm span NACA0012 aerofoil with pressure tappings for use with the AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
A 150 mm chord NACA2412 unsymmetrical section aerofoil with 300 mm span and adjustable flap for use with the AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
A set of two aerofoils both of NACA0012 profile and 150 mm chord for use with the AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
Optional supporting products for the AF100
A tilting 36-tube manometer for use with the AF100 Series Subsonic Wind Tunnel, other TecQuipment products, or as a general purpose instrument.
A single component balance to measure the lift and drag forces on models mounted in an AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
A three-component balance designed for use with the AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
The AFA4 Angle Feedback Unit is an optional ancillary for use with an AFA3 Three-Component Balance to measure the angular position of models mounted on the balance in an AF100 Subsonic Wind Tunnel.
