WIND TUNNELS

Open circuit wind tunnels where studies concerning obstacle aerodynamics (buildings, low speed vehicles, etc.), pollutant dispersion in urban areas, pedestrian wind comfort, complementary studies of urban planning in present and future scenarios of climate change, amongst others, are performed.

The Laboratory of Atmosphere Aerodynamics has two wind tunnels:

  • Tunnel 1 (6 m total length with a test section of 1.30 m x 0.25 x 0.30 m and a maximum speed of 70 km/h)
  • Tunnel 2 (12 m long, a test section of 6.5 m x 1.5 m x 1.0 m and a maximum speed of 36 km/h)
