Susan B. Chaplin (Editor)

Series: Mechanical Engineering Theory and Applications
BISAC: TEC009070

In this book, the authors discuss the design and construction, types and usage limitations of wind tunnels. Topics include the use of wind tunnels to analyze wind loading on scaffold structures; the characteristics of the Architecture and Building Research Institute wind tunnel project; analysis of the wind environment and air quality in densely populated areas using wind tunnel experiments; wind tunnel investigation into the drag characteristics of catamaran form; and environmental wind tunnels designed and constructed to investigate a wide range of aerodynamic tasks.
