Aerodynamic laboratory of Odessa National Maritime University /h4>
The laboratory is facilitated by two wind tunnels (big and small ones) with measuring and registering devices.
The big wind tunnel (BWT) has followings parameters:
- length – 25.4 m;
- width – 3.0 m;
- height – 3.6 m;
- working part length – 3 m;
- diameter – 1.75 m.
Wind speed range: maximal – 70 m/sec; minimal – 8 m/sec.
Small wind tunnel has the same scheme but smaller dimensions. Wind maximal speed is 30 m/sec.
Big wind tunnel (BWT)
Small wind tunnel (SWT)
Work scope that has been done using wind tunnel:
- Shape coefficient determination for bodies of different shape
- Flow shape visualization
- Flow modelling in a free surface (shade) presence
