About This Project

Our wind tunnel is the result of a collaboration between our university and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). It is composed of nine fans and the air flow can reach speeds up to 20 m/s. Its equipped with experimental devices which provide measurements of the pressure in different positions or the forces and torques exerted in the scaled models.

Our research is focused in understanding the effect of the air flow in automotive reference models (in collaboration with the Universidad de Malaga, UMA). We also have conducted tests for several companies. In the coming years, we are planning to diversify our research to test the action of the wind in different key structures in agricultural, civil or industrial structures or prototypes. Along with the research activity, we are willing to perform different experiments with companies that want to test the action of the wind in their products.
