Wind Tunnel Testing

BMT operates a number of major wind tunnel facilities and is experienced in wind testing for both the civil engineering and oil and gas sectors.

BMT operates three large in-house wind tunnel facilities, including a large Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel and a High-Speed Uniform Flow Wind Tunnel. These facilities are supported through state-of the art instrumentation and data acquisition systems, to support comprehensive studies of steady and unsteady aerodynamic effects on large scale engineering structures and automotive vehicles. In particular, these facilities support:

  • Boundary layer wind tunnel testing
  • Bluff body aerodynamic testing
  • Static and dynamic section model testing
  • Airfoil testing
  • Open and closed wheel race car testing

 

  • Airports

    With the globally increasing volume in air traffic, airport passenger terminal buildings are being designed at unprecedented scale and increasingly employing landmark architecture and innovative structural design of support systems for the roof.
