We supplied Kent State University with our Subsonic Wind Tunnel, in partnership with one of our representatives in the United States, Buckeye Educational.

Buckeye recently visited Kent State to talk to Dr. Blake Stringer about how they use the Subsonic Wind Tunnel in the laboratory sessions and to give us a walk around of the equipment.  Through the video Dr. Stringer discusses the different models they use, the benefits of using the Three-Component Balance and provides an example of using VDAS, the data acquisition system.
