Tour of new Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Facilty in Burlington VT

Wind Engineering class students toured the recently commissioned Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel in Burlington, VT. The facility has been developed by SOH Wind Engineering, a firm headquartered in Denmark. The tunnel is an interesting design with parallel 3m by 3m cross section 20m long sections for bluff body aerodynamics. Students were able to experience the wind and observe some calibration tests.
