An unsymmetrical section (cambered) aerofoil with adjustable flap.
The Three-Component Balance (AF1600t, available separately) can hold the aerofoil to measure lift, drag and pitching moment. Using a Pitot tube, students can traverse the aerofoil wake to find the downstream pressure distribution and find the drag on the aerofoil. They can compare these results with the direct measurements from a balance.
TecQuipment’s Smoke Generator (AFA11, not included) increases the educational value of the experiments by showing the flow of air around the model.
- Study the effects of control surfaces such as flaps, ailerons, elevator or rudder.
- Examine the difference between unsymmetrical and symmetrical aerofoils, by comparing the results to the AF1600d symmetrical aerofoils.
An open circuit suction subsonic wind tunnel with a working section of 600 mm by 600 mm and 1250 mm long. Package includes a Three-Component Balance, Dual Axis Pressure Traverse and associated instrumentation such as a 32-Way Pressure Display Unit and Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS-F).
This smoke generator and probe are an optional ancillary to TecQuipment's AF1125, AF1450 and AF1600. It allows the observation of airflow in subsonic wind tunnels and other airflow situations.
The high wing model aircraft with NACA profile wings for use with the Large Subsonic Wind Tunnel (AF1600) is good for experiments with lift, drag and pitching moment of fixed wing aircraft.
A set of different shape models for use with the Large Subsonic Wind Tunnel (AF1600S) each with identical frontal area to allow students to compare the different coefficient of drag for each shape. Includes a dummy stem for tests to cancel out the drag due to each model’s support arm.
A pair of boundary layer models with a mounting plate, also a pitot and a static probe for investigating boundary layer. One plate is roughened, the other smooth to allow comparisons on boundary layer growth.
