Wind tunnels are essential to measure the aerodynamic effectiveness of objects. Air is moved past the object/wind tunnel model by a powerful Howden fan and the effects can be measured and studied, allowing the researchers to view aerodynamic forces, pressure distribution or other aerodynamic-related characteristics.
We can provide a full advisory, consultation and design service, and in doing so can offer our customers the lowest possible lifetime costs and peace of mind.
To deliver on your specific needs we can offer bespoke packages that range from single fans to multiple products, ensuring we can meet your exact requirements.
Wind tunnels provide a concentrated stream of air in a vertical or horizontal flow. Quite often wind tunnels are used in the testing of products, such as seen in the automotive industry, to develop aerodynamic designs. Wind tunnels are also utilized for recreational applications such as indoor skydiving facilities. Howden is well known for the manufacture of wind tunnel axial fans.
