3D Printed Wind-Tunnel

3D Printed Wind-Tunnel

One of our project partners – Majaczech, z.s. just published 3D printed wind tunnel used for calibrating velocity measurement instruments and live data logging. All parts were printed on a 3D printer. An Arduino Uno electronic platform is used to build the control unit with a capacity to measure a velocity ranging from 0 m/s – 5 m/s is used to calibrate a Rev.P hot-wire anemometer.

Now you can use your own wind tunnel for education purposes and research in fire engineering. Development of this equipment is motivated by sharing and increasing access of research tools and methods independently on expensive equipment which we wish will allows increase progress and development in fire engineering and fire safety.

In order to safely built and operate the testing apparatus, experience with Arduino platform is required and supervision from a qualified electric engineering professional.

The wind tunnel is developed in cooperation between Majaczech, z.s. and Occupational Safety Research Institute.

The wind-tunnel was certified as open source hardware by Open Source Hardware Association
