Recent modifications and calibration of the Langley low-turbulence pressure tunnel. By W. D. Beasley, R. J. Mcghee and J. M. Foster. Abstract. Modifications to the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel are presented and a calibration of the mean flow parameters in the test section is provided. Also included are the operational capability of Author: W. D. Beasley, R. J. Mcghee and J. M. Foster. Recent modifications and calibration of the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel / By Robert J.

There are 25 tunnels with length more than 2 kilometers, constructed for various hydropower projects. The longest pressure tunnel is km long and – m in diameter for the Yutzexi I Station in the Southwest Region. The Tianshengqiao Project on the upstream reach of Hongshuihe is proposed to drive 3 power tunnels each of km long. Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel. The Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel (LTPT) is a single return, closed-circuit tunnel that can operate from 1 to 10 atmospheres. The LTPT has been used for tests of high-lift airfoils, basic research, and theory validation. " Recent Modifications and Calibration of the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel, " NASA TP, 26 van Ingen, J. L., Boermans, L. M. M., and Blom, J. J. H., " . The first series of airfoils, designated “M sections” for Max M. Munk, was tested in the Langley Variable-Density Tunnel (Ref. 4). This series was significant because it represented a systematic approach to airfoil development as opposed to earlier, random, cut-and-try approaches.

The model contour accuracy was generally within ± inch. Wind Tunnel The Langley Low- Turbulence Pressure Tunnel (ref. 3) is a closed-throat, single-return tunnel which can be operated at stagnation pressures from 1 to 10 atmospheres w'ith wind-tunnel empty-test-section Mach numbers up to and , respectively. “ Recent Modifications and Calibration of the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel,” NASA TP, Google Scholar [28] van Ingen J. L., Boermans L. M. M. and Blom J. J. H., “ Low-Speed Airfoil Section Research at Delft University of Technology,” ICAS 80 . The Volvo Cars aerodynamic wind tunnel has had a vortical flow angularity pattern in the test section since its original commissioning in The vortical flow nature persisted after an upgrade in , when the fan was replaced and a moving ground system was introduced. It has been hypothesized that the cause for this flow angularity pattern was leakages around the heat exchanger installed.
