TunnelSys Simulator

Views: 921

With this software you can investigate the design, testing, and post-processing of a wing model in a wind tunnel. TunnelSys is a series of three Java computer programs which students can use to explore the process of wind tunel testing. In wind tunnel testing, an engineer must first design and build a wind tunnel model with all of the appropriate instrumentation included. The model is then placed in the tunnel test section and air is blown over the model. Different diagnostic techniques may be employed during a wind tunnel test and the instrumentation records the desired information for the model designer. The engineer who conducts the wind tunnel test is not normally the same person who designed the model, but someone who is a specialist at wind tunnel operation. The data from the test then goes to a third engineer who performs the necessary data reduction and produces performance plots for the initial engineer.
