Project descriptions

In this wind tunnel project, we attempted to bridge the affordability and availability gap issue of wind tunnels that are catered to undergraduate teaching & learning and research & development purposes. We first adapted and applied a robust methodology which underpinned how we designed, manufactured, and operated our wind tunnel. A series of wind tunnel tests were then conducted to validate the wind tunnel’s performance from three perspective: quantitative, qualitative, and actual real-world references. Our findings showed us that we achieved a satisfactory wind tunnel performance in all three categories of wind tunnel tests. It is firmly believed that this, and hence this type of wind tunnels, albeit being created under a budget constraint, could be utilized to handle aerodynamic and fluid dynamic studies, which ultimately could be further developed to meet the needs of different undergraduate applications (SIGs, URFP, REU, FYPs, Labs, etc.).
