Wind tunnel: 2.1m by 1.5m by 4.4m This is one of our larger wind tunnels. We use it for student research projects, wind engineering studies and marine industry work. Wind tunnel: 3.5m by 2.4m by 10.5m The R J Mitchell Wind Tunnel is the largest of our wind tunnels. It's ideal for vehicle aerodynamic work and performance sport testing. It can also be used for consultancy. Wind tunnel: 90cm by 60cm by 4.5m This is the smallest of our wind tunnels. Academic research and student projects are carried out here. It's also used for flow visualisation and to calibrate instrumentation.
