LABORATORY OF EXPERIMENTAL AERODYNAMICS

Main activities:

Experimental Fluid Mechanics. Measurements of velocity, pressure and force on components and scaled models of airfoils, wings, cars, wind turbines (HAWT and VAWT), Micro Air Vehicles, bluff bodies. The tests are performed in the large subsonic wind tunnel with circular cross-section (up to 50 m/s maximum velocity), in a small transonic and supersonic jet facility (maximum Mach number 1.5) and in water jets (contraction jet, pipe jet and continuous and pulsed orifice jets with various shape and forcing).

Tools:

The experimental techniques which are employed are Pitot tubes single and multihole, pressure trasducer, Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) systems (2D and High-speed), continuous and pulsed Lasers, high-speed video cameras (up to 100.000 frames per second), cross-correlation video camera for PIV, commercial video e photo cameras, microscope with lenses and cameras for microPIV, Laser Doppler Anemometer (LDA) system, Hot Wire Anemometer (HWA) e Ultra-sound Anemometer (UA), force balance. Oil droplets generator for seeding (Laskin nozzle).

Address:

Laboratories of Fluid-dynamics, Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Via Eudossiana 18, 00184, Roma, Italy (subway stop: line B, Colosseo or Cavour).
