Wind tunnel testing facilities
NRC offers six wind tunnels to support industrial, government and university clients, as well as in-house research projects. Projects are normally of a customized nature and extensive efforts are applied to derive innovative approaches in instrumentation, software and operations to meet client needs.
In addition to the facilities, NRC has recognized expertise in wind tunnel correction methodologies, pressure sensitive paint technology, flow mapping, and aerodynamic noise measurement.
The wind tunnels include a 1.5 m x 1.5 m trisonic pressurized blowdown, and five low-speed wind tunnels: 9 m x 9 m, 2 m x 3 m, 3 m x 6 m (open-circuit propulsion and icing), 0.9 m x 0.9 m, and a 0.57 m x 0.57 m altitude icing facility.
