Wind Tunnel -Pitot

After refreshing your theory and equipment knowledge, Please note the experiment availability as in table below. This experiment is AVAILABLE ON WED/THUR/FRI.

  1. Go to the RT tab and click "Click here to start experiment" in the variable panel.
  2. Click the "Start" button
  3. Click the "Pitot calibration" button
  4. Wait till the "Pitot position" in the station status to reach 40mm.  only then the "Set air Velocity" slider will be activated.
  5. Start the tunnel by setting a velocity of 15m/s on the "Set air Velocity" slider (user can set the air velocity only one  time)
  6. Adjust the "Set pitot position" slider to vertically traverse the pitot probe into and out of the wake region. 
  7. Move the slider  to 30mm. Wait for some time until the graph is plotted. Then move to the next position (20, 10... to -40mm) using the "set pitot position" slider. 
  8. Click the "Stop" button to stop the experiment.
  9. Click the "Export" to export  the velocity profile readings for post processing.
  10.  Estimate the Drag from the momentum and velocity deficit behind the model as compared to freestream.
