Large anechoic chamber Our anechoic chamber is a silent room 'without echoes' used for carrying out standard acoustical tests. Reverberation chambers We have a large and a small reverberation chamber which we use for acoustic testing. 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.
