That sure is an interesting test. Nevertheless, the trailer's motion relative to the wind is far too slow to be useful. You could do better by attatching it to a tractor and driving with some reasonable speeds. Setting the fire in the forwards part of the trailer would have been better too. Could you repeat the test with such improved procedure?

You jest.

If this abandoned trailer was running skirts or wheel covers, it will set back the state of art by 8-10 months.

VUB Wind Tunnel Build threads

From Part 7:
Quote:
The diffuser morphs the airflow from the rectangular section to the round inlet of the fan.

This proved to be the most complex part to build. Though the contraction duct was larger and heavier, the wall sheets only had to be bent in one plane. This was easy and required little force.


Squircles!



11kw fan, ten meters long. It's 2 tons on casters so they can move it. Used by University students and the designer of the Aeromodeller2.
