Lab Facilities


Picture of the new low-speed wind tunnel completed February 2010.

The working section is 1.2 m wide, 0.8 m high and 5 m long, with an expected maximum air velocity of 50 m/s.

Group picture taken in front of the working section. Also features in the picture are the gentlemen who manufactured and built the tunnel. 

Picture of Ronnie and Jag inside the return leg of the tunnel. The tunnel's motor and fan assembly can be seen in the background.
Some times nature becomes our laboratory. In this figure, you can see the clouds are used as a flow visualization tool (kindly provided by mother nature). The growth of an instability wave (presumably the early growth of Kelvin-Helmholtz waves) can be observed from right to left.
