overv i ew of the ful l product range
The aerodynamics range is used for teaching a vast range of aerodynamic principles – from fundamentals through to advanced theories – with products to suit every space, budget and complexity requirement. The wind tunnels span a variety of sizes and experimentation capabilities, from benchtop models for learning the basics, to versions requiring large laboratories for a more detailed understanding of aerodynamics.
Pr i nc i p l es of Aerodynami cs TecQuipment’s subsonic wind tunnels teach students the basics of lift, drag and pitching moments, plus high-level topics such as boundary layer and pressure distribution around models. Students can
also perform wake investigations. Advanced Theory of Aerodynami cs
TecQuipment’s supersonic wind tunnels are for the more advanced teaching of aerodynamics engineering, with experiments that start with nozzle pressure distribution, on to analysis of Mach numbers, and the measurement and visualisation of pressure and shock waves using Schlieren apparatus. Automat i c data acqu i s i t i on A variety of the products in this range work with TecQuipment’s unique Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS ® ).
