A generic model van and car to allow students to compare the different coefficient of drag for each vehicle. If using the optional smoke generator (AFA11) the flow of air around the vehicles can be observed.
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).
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.
Flat Plate Bundary Layer Model Roughened and Smooth
AF1600F - Experiment
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.
