MP 142 FLOW VISUALIZATION WIND TUNNEL
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    The apparatus is intended for visualization of stream lines flow around models.

    The apparatus consists of a stilling entrance, a contraction section with air flow straighteres, a streamlines distributor, a viewing window, an air blower, and a smoke generator.

    Air flow is controlled by the blower damper and the outlet valve. The window has a black back ground and side lights are provided for better visualization of the streamlines. Three models – an aerofoil, a cylinder, and a square are supplied. Other models can be made by students.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Laminar and turbulence flow observation.
  • Flow patterns around bodies.
  • Boundary separation on bodies.
  • Effects of angle of attack.
