AD 01.1 – Aerodynamics Bench

The aerodynamics bench is designed to perform a variety of experiences in the field of fluid mechanics, using a controlled airstream for it.

It has a frecuency shifter, which regulates the rotational speed of the fan, and therefore, the airflow in the test zone.
The bench has a system of fast connections, which facilitates and speeds up the installation of the different work equipments.
