Wind Tunnel Testing Labs

The Wind Tunnel Testing Labs consist of facilities, equipment, and expertise to develop and conduct wind tunnel tests to provide data for the design of air vehicles. Our personnel specialize in activities required to successfully execute tests, including test planning and execution (test engineering), model design and manufacture and test facility operations.

Low Speed Wind Tunnel
The Low Speed Wind Tunnel is a conventional single return, atmospheric pressure, closed test section facility. Maximum wind speed is 200 mph in the 16.25-foot high by 23.25-foot wide test section.

For information, call Joe Patrick, 770-494-4158

Compressible Flow Wind Tunnel
The Compressible Flow Wind Tunnel is a blowdown transonic wind tunnel with a 28-inch high by 20-inch wide test section. Nozzle blocks can be installed to provide Mach number 1.5 and 2.0.

For information, call Joe Patrick, 770-494-4158

Thrust Measurement Facility (TMF)
The TMF provides development of aircraft program nozzles and propulsion components as well as calibration of wind models and other aerodynamic flow devices.

For information, call Chris Ayers, 817-763-1749

Advanced Development Facility (ADF))
The ADF is a 2-foot by 3 foot cross section, low speed wind tunnel used to develop, validate, or troubleshoot technologies, aircraft and propulsion concepts, or components.

For information, call Wink Baker, 817-763-1987

Hydro Flow Facility (HFF)
The HFF is a 2-foot by 3-foot cross section, water tunnel used to develop, validate, or troubleshoot technologies, aircraft and propulsion concepts, or components. HFF offers unique flow visualization capabilities.

For information, call Wink Baker, 817-763-1987

Experimental Fluid Dynamics Facilities (EFDF)
The EFDC is comprised of a 2-foot by 2-foot cross section, low-speed low-turbulence wind tunnel and a 2-foot by 2-foot cross section, smoke tunnel used to develop, validate, or troubleshoot technologies, aircraft and propulsion concepts, or components.

For information, call Mark Buchholz, 661-572-7976
