The aerodynamics range is used for teaching a vast range of aerodynamic principles – from fundamentals to advanced theories – with products to suit every space, budget and complexity requirement. The wind tunnels span a variety of sizes and experimentation capabilities, from benchtop models for learning the basics, to versions requiring large laboratories for a more detailed understanding of aerodynamics.
Principles of Aerodynamics:
TecQuipment’s subsonic wind tunnels teach students the basics of lift, drag and pitching moments, plus high-level topics such as boundary layer and pressure distribution around models. Students can also perform wake investigations.
Advanced Theory of Aerodynamics:
TecQuipment’s supersonic wind tunnels are for the more advanced teaching of aerodynamics engineering, with experiments that start with nozzle pressure distribution, on to analysis of Mach numbers, and the measurement and visualization of pressure and shock waves using Schlieren apparatus.
Key features and benefits:
• Made for teaching: Realistic results yet small enough for laboratories.
• Flexibility: Packages of equipment can be chosen to suit budgets and needs.
• Easy set-up: It takes only minutes to change and set up an experiment.
• Hands on: Laboratory-scale parts allow easy fitting and adjustments, for a more practical understanding.
