In the institute building a subsonic wind tunnel Göttingen type with open measuring section is located. Two motors are available depending on the desired speed. Various model platforms as well as a slewing device and a traverse system are available for measurements.

Special devices

  • Floor suction plate with separate fan for floor simulation
  • Rotor and propeller test bench for the investigation of flow and sound emission of rotors and propellers
  • Compressed air supply for the simulation of engine thrust jets
  • Gust generator
