Integrated Engineering

Fluid Mechanics Lab

Students conduct experiments in wind tunnel testing, flow metering, hydrostatics, jet flows, etc.

Subsonic Wind Tunnel

The test section of the wind tunnel is 1 ft × 1ft. In the Fluid Mechanics Lab, students test the aerodynamic characteristics of shapes using dynamic similarity.
